KIRKUS REVIEW

The theme of communist penetration in the United States, which Helen MacInnes used in Neither Five nor Ten appears again in this story of Washington today, a Washington where tensions appear even in social gatherings, where human relations are subject to suspicion. Sylvia Pleydell, married unhappily to a State Department official, meets again the man she had truly loved- and lost- a Czech, Jan Brovic, now back in Washington in a position of doubtful integrity. The relighting of the flame between them, with the attendant complications in the new post-war Washington, is the focus of the story, and is seen largely through the eyes of a young California cousin, Kate, and a young Korean veteran who had found Sylvia alluring and unobtainable. Skillfully told, eminently readable, but not up to the level of her first success, Above Suspicion.
