• "'Fan Tan fans the flames of the Marlon Brando myth.'"

  • "'Fan Tan is the kind of high-seas extravaganza nobody writes anymore . . . With loads of derring-do about bloodthirsty pirates, unscrupulous warlords, picaresque whores, incorruptible Sikh security guards and aphrodisiacal minerals, Fan Tan is nothing if not a ripping yarn, an old-fashioned potboiler with something for everyone."

    The New York Times Book Review
  • "'A good old fashioned swashbuckling adventure.'"
