THE MIND READERS

KIRKUS REVIEW

As Miss Allingham puts it- the "mystic, curling patterns of human adventure" can be very strange indeed. In this mystery/science/fiction/suspense novel the author shows how by suspending an ominous semi-supernatural cloud over the intricate plot. The mystery revolves around a scientific probe into mind-reading with two young English boys as the guinea pig participants. The device the young chaps use is called the "iggy-tube" but no one can determine who, why or what is behind the experiment and the boys are keeping their upper-lips buttoned. As the adults haggle, spy-hunt, and murder while governments ponder, the boys remained singularly undisturbed until the surprising climax. Jolly good show.
