Published in the early 1970s, some of the content is dated, but the overall premise is still as funny today as it was then. David Westheimer, by then author of many successful novels, could not find a U.S. publisher willing to accept a satire about professional killers who incorporated, to enjoy the tax advantages. The book was first published in the U.K. and enjoyed moderate success there. Later, it was published in the U.S. For entertainment value, the author could have spent more time and detail on the actual killings, instead of the business aspects of incorporation and subsequent hostile takeover by a funeral home holding company looking at vertical integration.
