KIRKUS REVIEW

Not as successful as last year's A Girl From Lubeck (Houghton Mifflin), this dagger-o-type of international intrigue takes Harold Hilliard, a British professor of logic, to Poland to give a lecture on his specialty- Dysteleological surd. A traveling companion, Karminski, is sedulously attentive; his luggage is searched; and once there he is tailed, monitored and pursued (by two young women as well). Before long he is thoroughly snarled in a case of mistaken identities, false passports and his own activities in a black market exchange of Polish currency which will return him to England more solvent and resigned to the forfeit of a September romance... As before, there are occasional touches of erudition and humor; still, this Iron Curtain caper remains out of bounds, if you draw the border lines somewhere between possibility and probability.
