ISLK OF ESCAPE by Labble Ross


Email this review


Reads lightly but well, this story of six who arrive in America via the same ship, and whose lives interlock again on shore to provide romance and a spyhunt. There is Bill, journalist assigned to do a story on the luxury refugees, a story which turns up a hornet's nest; there is Maria, foreign agent unsuspected; there are the Rudenheimere, older, broken, he a famous psychiatrist who finds no opening in the new world, and she who gives Bill the lead he needs on the espionage cabal; and Mary, an English girl bringing a small niece to safety, and with whom Bill falls in love. A little overdressed and superficial, but satisfactory light fare.
