Probably the Last "General Slocum's Gold" Review

I mentioned earlier that I finally got my hands on a copy of Dead Reckonings No. 2 at Boskone and it includes a capsule review of General Slocum's Gold. Here's a pull-quote:

"Kaufmann has a sure hand for plotting and dialogue, and his precise prose keeps the caper moving briskly to its horrific conclusion...The author has tapped into a deep vein of pulp storytelling for his tale."

It's a nice review, though I differ with the reviewer on one point: I don't view the conclusion as horrific at all. In fact, I think it's kind of sweet. But then again, I'm weird.

If you happen to be looking for a copy of Slocum, there are only a few left of the second printing. Get 'em right from the publisher before the out-of-stock lag time kicks in.
