"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.
