Review: The Price of Murder

User Review  - Martin Reaves - Goodreads

John D. MacDonald is one of those writers who is so damn good it hurts. Written in 1959, The Price of Murder somehow manages to avoid feeling dated. A nasty little tale of murder, deception, and schemes gone awry, the tale succeeds brilliantly. MacDonald never disappoints. Read full review
