The lost pulp crime novel by great American novelist Gore Vidal! Hired to smuggle an ancient artefact out of Egypt, Pete Wells finds himself the target of killers and femme fatales - and just one step away from triggering a revolution that will set Cairo aflame! Thieves Fall Out employs the brisk, tongue-in-cheek tone of the Edgar Box novels. The cast of characters includes Hastings, "British subject, born to be hanged," and Helene, Contesse de Rastignac, "Parisienne, phony as a three-dollar bill, a lovely vulture." Laced with wry humor, the novel carries its suspense to an explosive climax: "Small wonder," says the back cover, "with a cutthroat crew like this on its register, the world-famed Shepheard's Hotel blew up."
