Review:

Lyall has produced a model of the breathtaking narrative in The Most Dangerous Game.[he] writes with zest and bite; he is a master of the rare art of storytelling. (Anthony Boucher New York Times Book Review)

A glorious tale, vivid in character and escapade. (Book Week)

Carey is great with a gun and deadpan about danger as he weaves through prohibited territory, eluding bears and crooks and radar in his beat-up old aeroplane. (The Spectator 1964-03-13)

About the Author:

Gavin Lyall (1932-2003) lived in Hampstead and enjoyed sailing on the Thames in his motor cruiser. From 1959 to 1962 he was a newspaper reporter and the aviation correspondent for the Sunday Times. His first novel, The Wrong Side of the Sky, was published in 1961, drawing from his personal experiences in the Libyan Desert and in Greece. Lyall left journalism in 1963 to become a full-time author, writing 17 novels before his death in 2003.
