Not one of Block s better efforts, but even his not so good novels are entertaining at times From the description I thought it would be better than it was It read like a lost script of the A Team Maybe that s where they got the idea for the show.
The characters are initially well handled and then given short shrift at the end Scantily drawn This is especially bad at the end when structures become important.
series tales, but the plotting stinks Seems to me Block had a much larger vision, maybe even starting his own series, and as he got near the end, he sliced his efforts to minimum, finished off the book and went on the to the next After a build up of a collection of new characters and their various abilities, they are collected to complete a mission that is then written off quickly to the point I wasn t really sure if they actually met whatever goal they were trying to make.
The story is an odd case of vengeance involving important a treatment of a woman that ends up an effort to destroy the person involved but really ends with something different I found the ending I always enjoy the writing of Lawrence Block, and this was no exception.
originally written in 1969 and now available as an ebook, this delightful book was a fun read and a good story.
Set in the late 60 s it has the feel of an older story.
no internet go to the library for resources no cell phones, etc.
fun Veterans trying to to make things right when bad guys make things go wrong.
interesting characters, with a good back story, some fun, some great story points the pretend tree surgeons, setting up a reference in a cute way with a sweet woman.
This is lite reading,easy going and uncomplicated Enjoy.
At the end is an afterwards about the story and how this as going to be a series and then became a series of one book Too bad, would have enjoyed .
Bonus feature photos of L Block at the end.
nice touch

This is a novel written in time when original Mission impossible, A Team and Equalizer shows were very popular That being said in here we also have a team in which every man is a specialist for certain area be it technical or social Also some of them are not that OK themselves some are troublemakers but Army helped them find their place so to speak They might all come from various backgrounds but in the Army and in hell that is Vietnam war they learned to look beyond the social status and race and rely on each other through tough times.
