    1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: PSYCHO-BABE, July 20, 2002 Reviewer: Larry Rochelle from Kansas City Bouncing around is what Nancy Hayes does best, flitting out into the resort town, shooting out windows, leading men astray, planning for that big, cheap, yet dangerous, thrill. But Jack Ryan stays oh so close to her, hoping, hoping ... for what? Certainly Nancy is stylish and cunning, but a psycho-babe is not what he needs, now that he's escaped from the dangers of migrant work. Why doesn't he just go home to Detroit, grab himself a beer and a nice woman? Elmore Leonard, author of THE BIG BOUNCE, probes his daring hero's motivation, but can never give us a clear answer to Jack's attraction. Why would anyone want to climb into Nancy's web willingly? Why get that close to such a manipulator, unless, oh the horror, he's just too stupid to leave? Once again, Leonard creates a fictional woman we've read about in our local papers. She's the babe who got our friend in jail on trumped-up sex charges. She's the one who was involved with the captain of the college basketball team, causing him to lose his scholarship. She's the one who smiled as the TV cameras whirred, designating her as the most dangerous woman in black. Oh boy, she loves fame, and she doesn't mind taking you to your own grave, while she shovels the first load of dirt on top. Gentlemen, read this cautionary tale before some mysterious lady winks at you in the cocktail room of your neighborhood motel, and you go along with one of her intrigues. Larry Rochelle, author of the mysteries DEATH & DEVOTION, DANCE WITH THE PONY and TRACETRACKS. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title
