    1 thought on “The Highbinders”

    1. One more from the St Ives series written by Ross Thomas. This time in London which makes a change and provides the opportunity for some cross cultural interchange including a much needed take down of the vaunted English Breakfast. The problem is that everyone is bad and the action such as it is is the crooks double and triple crossing each other off screen. So not the best but still quality.

    2. American go-between Philip St. Ives is hired to get back King Louis IX old sword. I liked the wise cracking banter of St. Ives, but after about half-way through things started to slow down.

    3. Philip St. Ives, professional go-between, is off on another adventure, this time to London. Seems a young man has found that the beat-up old sword his father picked up in Shaftsbury Avenue was really the legendary sword of the crusader king St. Louis.Too bad someone nicked it from him before he could sell it.I can't say too much, but things develop from there. The cast of typically colorful characters is large, and of course colorful, and the search for the sword is a lot of fun, though the endi [...]

    4. Ross Thomas solves wording problems so well that I thought I would like this book for that reason alone. I was wrong. That talent is on display only occasionally, and the story is so absurd that I did not enjoy the book. It begins like a real novel, but half way through settles into being just a mystery with a rather silly story once all the bits are explained, and they are explained rather than shown. Mystery fans seem to enjoy this book, but it did not give me enough of what I want.

    5. An ideal plot with quirky characters that would serve well as the basis for a clever, caper sort of movie starring Amy Adams, Matt Damon, George Clooney and the rest of the usual suspects.
