The Russians are fond of printing John D MacDonald’s works as omnibuses containing two or three novels. This one features A Man of Affairs, The Beach Girls, and a third unidentified novel. It’s difficult to research this book because the ISBN is apparently invalid. And of course it’s in Cyrillic, so it’s extra hard to search on the intertubes.

The cover itself is a bizarre montage. That’s obviously Charles Bronson apprehending a skunk in the upper left, but what is that thing next to him? We have two screaming girls at the bottom and the one on the right has a pair of award winning Fear Hands but must compete in the Junior Division since she appears to be nine years old. Top it off with a National Geographic yellow frame icon and voila! We have a mess.

Milk Carton
