Juri, that's pretty much the way I remember the Monty Nash novels, too. This discussion has caused me to drag out my copy of 20TH CENTURY CRIME AND MYSTERY WRITERS (2nd ed.) and look at the article I wrote on Jessup. I called the Monty Nash novels "outrageously entertaining tongue-in-cheek spy novels." I said that the action was literally non-stop and that Nash was the "toughest spy in literature, a sort of latter-day Race Williams." I added that Nash is always after "the Reds." As he puts it, "There is only one enemy." Here's a favorite line I quoted from THE SLAVERS: "It takes a lot of man to shoot down someone in cold blood, especially a woman. I'm a lot of man."

Spillane influence, anyone?
