The Freedom TrapReview:
This is one of Desmond Bagley's 108% action stories which tracks across a lot of territory (England, Ireland, Gibraltar) after Rearden, or the man called Rearden, who is hired by Mackintosh to lift some diamonds which will send him to jail where he can interest a circuit of escape artists called the Scarperers. In their hands he finds the confinement closer than the "nick," until he gets away and with Macintosh's daughter shuttles and shoots his way clear in an operation which has a much higher political ceiling. Breathe deeply and start counting - it's natty, peremptory stuff. (Kirkus Reviews)
