Picks and Pans Review: The Caribbean Account
by Alan Furst
The hero is a troubleshooter working for a New York law firm. One of its clients is incredibly wealthy and has a daughter who's been led astray by a cult leader. The woman is being bilked of her fortune, and Furst's tough-guy hero is assigned to locate the heiress and recover the cash. Dope, money laundering and psychotherapy are involved. There is also a lot of sex and violence, and a family of evil eccentrics that echo Philip Marlowe. The writing is crisp, first-rate and loaded with just the right details. (Delacorte, $11.95)
