Another republished leftover in the Withered Man series circa 1940 is to be read, if at all possible, for its fashion touches (silver fox cape and plum colored plus-fours) and facial expressions -- a Frenchman whose lips twist and snarl although there's a German that roars all the time -- even twice in four lines. Anyway Bruce Murdoch and Mary, agents, posing as a honeymoon couple, handle some spies and stolen papers and a Plan in those World War II days when a German General could be called Von Hiddenthrop. . . . Would that deceased meant desist.
