KIRKUS REVIEW

There was a Dodd, Mead book by Hans Habe, Three Across the Frontier, a book which indicated latent power. Now comes this, a better book, but still, perhaps, too close to matters in which he is emotionally concerned to give full scope to his abilities. He is a Hungarian, his father fought for Germany in the last war, he is fighting against Germany in this war. And this story is set in Geneva, in the sixteen days of the Munich crisis, compact with the tension of that time, and with the events that followed inherent as forces in the swift paced tragedy which brought into focus and culminated in tragedy the crisis in three lives. A moving book, well done.
