A man will do nearly anything when a rich and lovely lady offers him fifty thousand dollars just to make a phone call Yet, when that phone call is a piece of a fake hijack plan to concentrate five hundred thousand dollars from one of the wealthiest men on the planet, just a sucker would bet on the arrangement paying off to support him Harry Barber is a sucker Following three and a half years in prison for a wrongdoing he didn t confer, with no employment and no cash, he is the ideal focus of a s [...]

I read loads of James Hadley Chase when I was a teenager, and would happily read now if I could find them There must be dozens but this is the only one whose title I remember Pulp fiction but what s wrong with that
Old book, but a real thriller Made me come to home early from office
good, but i found the film palmetto appealing i ll read other jhc books, when i get a chance i like his style.
Harry Barber is the perfect sucker, the Good guy with the Bad luck, and of course, Greed.And he isn t the only one.Just vintage Chase.
Very good read, unpredictable I really enjoyed the book
When Harry Barber, a journalist got into trouble for selfish reasons at first, he realise he should have taken the money the DA gave him to keep his mouth shut Some years later, out from Jail, picked up by his police friend and who also was also at the time trying to get him a police job Harry with little or less to do got into a serious case where he had to fake a kidnapping which he would have refused if the money wasn t tempting and little did he know he was only been used as a smoke screen R [...]
Probably one of his earlier books, which could be the reason for the slightly weak storyline The reason for the low rating was, that I was expecting much from such a well known author.In the first part his hero is shown as an honest person, who would rather go to jail, than take a bribe.Later, however, the villain is a different person entirely, which sounds higly implausible

Just like any typical James Hadley book, this one too was fast paced and hard to put down It certainly kept me at the edge of my seat, feeling the anticipation of Barber However, it was somewhat predictable and the ending felt rushed and an easy way out.
I m going to give it 3.5 stars Like all James Hadley chase novels i have read, it was a quick and engaging read.
Killed it like a pro.
Really great I think there was one movie made on this book but it was not that great compared to the book.
This is one of the best ones from JHC Taut writing and an enjoyable cat and mouse game between the characters Recommended read.
Just How Clever an artist for writing the best murder thriller mystery novels, the maestro JHC had me hooked 35 years ago and now for the third time, he has me searching for his books still
Terrible writing Predictable plot line Had to force myself to read this book.
