Claudel, before locking up, had activated its alarm system: anyone attempting to enter it would set off a blast of sound that would bring out the fire truck itself. et, after removing a lighter that could photograph, a pair of eyeglasses that could amplify conversation from fifty feet away, a cigarette pack that could communicate within a three-mile radius. He was now wearing his tweed jacket that could take his neat automatic without bulging a pocket. His good arm carried Bernie’s lightweight bag.

Helen MacInnes (1907-1985) was the Scottish-born American author of 21 spy novels. I have been a devoted fan of Helen MacInnes's work since the 1960s. I have never known her to disappoint. Several of her books have been adapted into films, such as Above Suspicion (1943), with Joan Crawford, and The Salzburg Connection (1972). She was a thoughtful observer of politics and political events, which of course guarantees my interest.

I have been a devoted fan of Helen MacInnes's work since the 1960s. I have never known her to disappoint. She was a thoughtful observer of politics and political events, which of course guarantees my interest. (I am a political science professor who specializes on Russia [then the USSR] and Eastern Europe.) Her specialty was always the "talented amateur" caught up in espionage. One way she helped establish a realistic fictional universe was to create a supporting cast of professionals. Certain characters turn up, often with no more than a half dozen lines. Mimi, Frank Rosenfeld, Elias, Johann Keppler, Chris Holland, and more appear, often so briefly that only the most attentive readers may catch their moment on stage. (Keppler appears here, some 40 years after his debut in Pray for a Brave Heart.) The Robert Renwick stories differ in a number of important areas. It is the first time that she employed a recurring protagonist. He's married. (Or he marries at the end of the first story.) He's a professional, working first for NATO then helping found for a private intelligence network concentrating on terrorism. He's an American, but his Interintel organization is based on Europe. The US is "sympathetic" but not an affiliate. What does not change is her extraordinary sense of "place" and her strong moral code. She is very much a product of her time and background, and her greatest skill lay in her ability to create a completely believable universe and people it with equally believable characters. I can, and often do, reread her books, knowing how they will end, simply for the pleasure of immersing myself in her world. I'm as much a fan today as I was nearly half a century ago, and am delighted that her books are being reissued for Kindle.

I have been a Helen MacInnes fan for many years. The paperbacks I bought during the '70s are falling apart. I am delighted to see that Amazon has made them available electronically. Ms. MacInnes was noted for writing thrillers set during the war years. They seem to me to be well researched and VERY well written. Not a lot of violence. No filthy language. Just well constructed who-done-it stories. I love her work.

Helen MacInnes writes great books. Have complete collection of her books in paperback but was wanting to get the digital ones for my Kindle. Am so glad they have finally digitized them! These books now have a resonance again-the terrorists of today aren't too much different than the anihilisists of yesteryear!

Slightly dated late 1970s plot but wonderful plot and writing. Helen Macinnes is one of the best. Her descriptions of places, of people, of situations are incredible - she is a travel writer as well as a suspense writer. The Robert Renwick books are some of her best work
Zugar
Robert Renwick is one of Ms. MacInnes' iconic characters, patriotic, brave, smart, and romantic, all in an understated way. All the books in the Renwick "series" are great.
Thetalen
This author is a favorite of mine.
she takes me to many interesting places-many dangerous - but I can enjoy them in the safety of my chair. The characters are well fleshed out .
the "good guys" are likeable and the "bad guys" nasty. She helps me understand the mind of a terrorist.
Pooker
Well written, well thought out. Author uses extensive vocabulary, big words. Writing is highly literate.
Exciting and intelligent as always. I would say Renwick was a bit too lucky in this sequel but i love him so i dont mind.
