Margin For Terror, first published in 1967, was the final Johnny Liddell novel ( some 30 novels plus two anthologies) after twenty years and, in fact, the last novel Kane put out, a year before he passed away. This is a solid, action-packed detective novel. In it, Kane focuses on a story of a boxer being forced to take a fall and what happens when he refuses to go along with the mob’s play. It feels much more like a mid fifties pulp than a late sixties paperback. Kane does a bit of a twist on the mob-boxing story and has Liddell involved trying to find the right thing and attempting to stay one step ahead of the mob thugs.
