Donn Taylor's book, Deadly Additive, is a roller-coaster ride of excitement. I don't normally gravitate toward Action/Adventure novels, but as a fan of Taylor's writing. I knew I'd like this one.
He mixes switched identities, loathsome bad guys, and an appealing hero and heroine into a hard-to-put-down novel. The action ranges from the tropics to the northern United States, and in every case his descriptions make you feel you're part of the story.
One extra feature that I particularly enjoyed was the inclusion of a family who mangle the English language with malapropisms. I remembered Taylor's humor from his previous book, Rhapsody in Red, and was glad to see it surface again in Deadly Additive.
If you're looking for an enjoyable read over these dark winter nights, I recommend Deadly Additive. The tropical scenes will help you forget the cold.
