Alison Kerry is our protagonist, and she makes her living as a courier hauling drugs and other contraband from one crook to the next. Her father is also in the drug business, as is his best buddy, and his girl friend.....etc. An honest guy sneaks into the book, but the author does him in quickly so that he doesn't make the other characters look too tawdry.
So, what's our Key West, trailer trash heroine (with the attractive feminine nickname of "Al") up to? She's moving a computer disc with some Vietnam secrets from one bad guy to the next, and she runs into trouble. There are three ho hum action scenes in the book separated by great gobs of filler.
I didn't care about any of the following elements of the book: the heroine; her friends; her family; the tedious, hackneyed Viet Nam atrocity plot; the soporific action scenes; or the writing. This, indeed, is one of those books that once you put it down, you will have trouble picking it up again.

About the Author
Jenny Siler grew up in Missoula, Montana. For much of her life, she has travelled and worked her way around the world, starting as a prep-cook in the scullery of a men's soup kitchen, through working in a fish cannery in Alaska pulling salmon roe, to being a nude sketch model at an art museum in Frankfurt. Her work, she says, has defined her and her writing.

Great writing, unbelievable plotReviewed in the United States on 15 June 1999
If you want to send a computer disc with Vietnam secrets why not US Mail or Fedex - or just telephone the New York Times? If you think you're being framed for murder why not get a lawyer?Flashbacks to cobble the plot and explain obscure motives. But she is a great heroine and the action scenes keep you on the edge of your seat.
