Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

On forced leave from Scotland Yard's Special Branch for political reasons, Campbell's counterterrorism expert Frank Pagan (Jig) is called back into service after a London subway car is incinerated by a bomb during rush hour. None of the usual Irish or Arab suspects claims credit, and the Yard is baffled. We know that American Embassy employee Bryce Harcourt was the bomb's target, that American courier Jake Striek is running for his life from a mysterious group called the "Undertakers," that philanthropist Tobias Barron is leading a double life, that international terrorist Carlotta ("vibrant with the idea of death") is having an affair with Barron and that the American ambassador to England is mixed up in arms trading. Pagan's introduction to this web of intrigue and deceit comes by way of a savagely bloody taunt from Carlotta, a lie about Harcourt from an American functionary and the spectacular assassination of that functionary. His wrap-up of the case begins when he uncovers a lethal plot against the Russian president. Despite a few extraneous musings between the sociopathic villain and psychotic villainess about their relationship, great pacing and suspense make Armstrong's newest thriller (after A Concert of Ghosts) first-rate, featuring a charismatic team in the loose-cannon Pagan and his upper-class assistant, Foxworth.

From Library Journal

Counterterrorist specialist Frank Pagan steps out of best sellers like Jig (LJ 5/1/90) into a new "jigsaw" puzzle: he's up against a mysterious assassin named Carlotta whose assignment is to stir political unrest-so that her employers can reap a financial windfall.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have read most of Campbell Armstrongs books and each with its unique story and insight has kept me glued from start to finish. I find it hard to believe that Amazon stock so few of the titles by this author. Jigsaw was maybe not quite as good as Jig, the first in the series and the first I read but still keeps you guessing throughout and keeps your mind active trying to match the people and the situations. I will continue to read Campbell Armstrongs books for as long as he can keep writing them.
