I am a long time fan of John D MacDonald starting with his book about a hurricane in Southwest Florida - Condominium was title as I recall. I am making an effort to go back and read a lot of his earlier work now that it is available as ebooks. Years ago I read all the Travis McGee books and have reread them all at least once. So I am not ‘objective’ in assessing his work. Some knowledgeable people have given him high praise, and of course not all of his work is of equal quality. One could argue there is some sameness about the problems behind the suspense.
This book is of interest because it focuses on the Cold War - not something I recall from his other books.
MacDonald was a great observer and commentator on society which adds depth and interest to his work. There is a lot of smoking in this book. Don’t know if he smoked, but I suspect he may have as in the end he died from coronary artery disease.
If you like a well paced story with interesting character development you should enjoy this book.
Okay...now John D. has shown me just how far afield he can go from chasing Tarpon in the FL Keys to military manufacturing and lusty family intrigue...wow this one was fun! I look forward to reading a lot more of these twisting, turning and complicated stories, this was a really good one.
Read more than forty of his books and I have not been disappointed by a single one of them . His insights into human behavior are exceptional, his writing is crisp and his ability to keep you engaged is first class.

After finishing the Travis McGee series, I decided to read all (or at least all of the ones I could obtain) of John D. MacDonald's novels, in order of publication. It's gonna take a while, and because my library system only has a few, I'm reading the others on the Kindle. It's a worthwhile project - fascinating to observe the evolution of JDM's style.
Edition being reviewed: Ballantine Books, November 1986.

Area of Suspicion has an interesting plot which most reader's will find rather jarring. At its essence, this book is a murder mystery. The narration is provided by Gevan Dean, the brother of the murdered man. Four years earlier, Gevan abdicated his role as president of Dean Products, a manufacturer of precision machine parts founded by Gevan's grandfather. He left the family business in the hands of his younger brother, Ken, who has now been murdered. The local police say it happened as part of a robbery gone bad. But there's really much more to it than meets the eye.

Starting with Ken's widow, Niki, a senuous beauty who was once Gevan's fiancee. For someone who has suddenly lost her husband, she is remarkably unshaken. Next there's Stanley Mottling, the scarily competent chief of production for Dean Products, who has inexplicably fired the company's best engineering talent. And Col. Dolson, an Army reservist who has seemingly been given carte blanche to run a top secret Pentagon project out of the Dean Products factory.
As Gevan pieces together what really happened to his brother, a number of shocking discoveries come to light and his own life becomes endangered.

On the negative side; MacDonald's evocative prose starts to become noticeably overwrought in certain places and the pacing could stand improvement. I found the first half of the book to be exasperatingly slow moving.
Bottom line: Excellent concept, subpar execution.
