Jack Vance at the helm of his boat on San Francisco Bay in the early 1980s. John Holbrook Vance (1916-08-28)August 28, 1916 San Francisco, California. Vance gave permission, and the book by Shea went into print before Vance's. Shea's book, A Quest For Simbilis, is entirely in keeping with the vision of Vance. The Edgar-Award-winning The Man in the Cage is a thriller set in North Africa at around the period of the French-Algerian war. A Room to Die In is a classic 'locked-room' murder mystery featuring a strong-willed young woman as the amateur detective. Bird Isle, a mystery set at a hotel on an island off the California coast, reflects Vance's taste for farce.

by Jack Vance (Author). But in the middle of a North African desert kasbah, with a truckload of contraband, the American feels less and less like a swashbuckling hero. Forced to reload his truck with a very suspicious cargo, he writes to his family asking for help. Noel disappears, and his brother Darrell comes to find him.
Noel Hutson considers himself a gentleman adventurer-but running guns in Morocco during Algeria's revolution, he gets more than he bargained for.
Darrell soon finds himself immersed in a shady world of ruthless smugglers and nationalist Muslim fanatics. When Noel disappeared, he took with him an enormous payment. Both sides think Darrell will lead them to it. The stakes are unimaginably high-and Darrell isn't the only one who could get hurt.
