Eye of the Archangel

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Fiction; Author: Forrest DeVoe, Jr.; Publisher: HarperCollins

It isn’t easy to invoke the spirit of James Bond without also summoning up the less serious, more snaggle-toothed spectre of Austin Powers. And there are certainly points in Eye of the Archangel, Forrest DeVoe Jr.’s second book about the globe-trotting adventures of ’60s spies Jack Mallory and Laura Morse when matters come a tad too close to ”shagadelic” territory for comfort. But the author’s obvious enthusiasm for his retro-genre action is infectious, and the book’s female villain — a marijuana-smoking Polish assassin named Milena — is as hugely memorable as she is just plain huge.
