KIRKUS REVIEW

This bids for a dual market- with the Helen MacInnes' international spy genre predominating. The prologue sets the pattern: a Finn deserts the quiet ways of a painter to employ his sense of the past on a perilous assignment; a naive American art teacher is tagged as a suspect and trailed through an erratic journey, all unsuspecting; an English girl tries to compensate for her traitor father; an evil group of men bungle an assignment set them by their masters in Moscow. And the story zigzags from one to another until their paths converge in violence and terror and escape and death. Exciting new talent for the American public.
