The impression I get from this is that it's a novel that should have ended with the first establishment of an American-backed military resistance against the background of occupation, thus leaving the reader with the thought about where things might go, rather than trying to neatly wrap everything up in a bow.

Welcome to the article writing team @M_Kresal !
A great review @M_Kresal and I'm glad someone was able to give this novel the time it deserved! It was on my long-list of AH titles to review but I could never get around to it
Thank you to you both! Glad to be here as the cliched longtime reader but first time writer for the blog. Hopefully not my last entry either!

That was my definitely my feeling from reading it, as the piece might attest to. Part of that, too, may be down to the believability factor after the passage of time, as well. After all, we as readers now have insights and knowledge that Allbeury (who was a first-class writer of thrillers) did not have writing this in the early 1980s.
