All the characters are here, and in fine fashion too: Trav, The Alabama Tigress, Meyer, and of course Miss Agnes. At times steamy and violent, this one captures the essence of the author's tale and moves along at a swift pace. As in all of the McGee stories we have a "broken bird" a mystery to be solved, and antagonists whose "wires are crossed." Smith is outstanding as the body building, demented Terry Bartell, and a fine musical score make this one fine viewing.
