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. ( )
