KIRKUS REVIEW

Subtitled ""A Story of Love and Intrigue"", this continues Miss Boyle's recoil from the literary to the lay level and like Avalanche, is a second slick, slim story of the underground, with that apprehensive approach which may appeal to you. This is the story of Guy Mitchie, American who had been with the Resistance for four years, and now -- after the Liberation -- was out to bring Pliny to justice, Pliny who had collaborated and killed many in the Savoyard village where he lived. It is also the story of Danielle Monnet, Pliny's secretary, whom Mitchie meets again and again in his search for Pliny from the Savoie to Lyons to Paris, whom he mistrusts -- but loves, and who in the end turns out to be on his side. Accomplished adventure, with just the right flush of ardor and idealism, and the market should parallel that of Avalanche.
