column 071 01/36 Murder Mirage column


A blizzard in July and a woman's image is frozen in glass -- how could these bizarre events possibly be connected? To find the answer and save the life of Ranyon Cartheris, the Man of Bronze and his dauntless allies journey to hot desert sands halfway round the world, where they are trapped -- perhaps never to emerge -- in the ancient underground tombs of Tasunan.

I liked this one. The woman in glass was darn cool!! Good action throughout. A daring escape from a burning dirigible, Pat kidnaped too many times to count, pursuits down dark tunnels, a new, weird element, exotic locales... Doc at his best if you ask me.

My favorite of the Donovan Docs and probably his most Dent-like. Those eerie opening scens are incredibly evocative and frightening. Had Donovan continued on this way he might have been one of the great Doc writers.

I agree with the other posted comments. A good novel, one of Donovan's better efforts. I also like the Pfeiffer cover quite a lot, though I could have wished for more detail in the face of the guy with the lantern. The pulp cover is fantastic. This is one of the ghosted Doc novels that stands up to multiple reads (I think Land of Long Juju holds up as well).
