Renwick, Interintell after Eric + Klaus okay suspense NY to Chamonix

From North Africa to New York, from London to Switzerland, the actoin and suspense of Helen MacInnes' new thriller are superb and unrelenting. The London pub was quiet and friendly-but the message passed was deadly. It was the beginning of a vast conspiracy of underground arms dealing....

Suitable for a short aeroplane trip. Perhaps on a wintery afternoon when you are at the Ski Lodge: you have read the papers, done the crosswords, washed your hair and cut your toenails - you might fill in some time reading this. ( )

Fast moving international intrigue with the main character in love with his wife. Much violence and disappointing discoveries in many venues make for exciting reading. ( )

2099 Cloak of Darkness, by Helen MacInnes (read 13 Sep 1987) In 1943 I read Above Suspicion and Assignment in Brittany. Now I read this 1982 book --it is at least her 20th book. I enjoyed it very much. Robert Renwick works for Interlntele, a private outfit fighting terrorists. He has a lovely young wife, Nina, and Claudel, a Frenchman who helps him in his work. This book hops around from England, to Djibouti, to France, U.S.A., and Switzerland. It is very fast-paced, and the good guys win, always. I loved it. The author was born in Scotland, and now is the widow of Gilbert Highet, and became an American citizen in 1951. ( )
