Comment: The Cairo Jones story reads like a novelette in that it is a twenty-four page story with a beginning, middle, ending, and denoument. The plot is intricate and the action plausible and motivated. The Bob Oksner artwork is also very tasty. Some short humor material fills out the rest of the book. This could have been a very good series but it is also a very well done one shot publication that would be difficult to improve upon. Highly recommended.
