KIRKUS REVIEW

Some of the fancier, even foolhardy, activities of an American Intelligence agent in France, this follows Peter Morrow who - on his arrival in Paris- finds that a very pretty girl, Kitty Blake, has ad libbed her way as his fiancee. Learning that Kitty is working for the Russians, who have jailed her parents in Budapest, he releases her from this pressure, learns of the Russian plan to send terrorist trains via Hungary into France. In the pursuit which follows, of Sokoline, a Russian diplomat who is the actual head of Soviet espionage in France, Peter -- with Kitty and with Legendre -- Chief of Police, cannot prevent the holdup of a train by the Russian saboteurs but ultimately succeeds in their capture. The old territory of espionage and counterespionage in a strictly contemporary variation, this has its lively- if also unlikely- moments.
