Woman at Bay, first published in 1945, is a novel of intrigue and suspense set in Havana during World War II by talented author George Harmon Coxe (1901-1984). From the publisher: The wife of an assassinated Vichy official arrives in Havana with her husband's diary. It is known that the diary contains the real facts about hidden collaborationists and it is suspected that it contains the facts about an American chemical firm suspected of being in a cartel tied up with the Nazis. So one of the American "hush-hush" war agencies sends a very attractive young man down to Havana to work on the woman and get that diary if he can. The only trouble is, she had been his wife before she married the Frenchman. And so conflict, intrigue, and difficulties are inevitable - and Paul MacKinnon finds himself in a far more violent and dangerous situation than even he anticipated. There is blood across his trail almost immediately after he lands in Havana. There are more deaths before he finishes. But when it is all over, he has one or two things to show for his job that Washington never dreamed of. It is one of Coxe's neatest, briskest performances - and that is saying a lot about a top-notch performer who has never disappointed his large and faithful audience.
