An omnibus of novels by

 
 
MacInnes is one of the best writers of what is called character-driven drama. She shows you vividly both the people and the places, at the same time showing you how the people respond to the places, and why they do what they do. Don't think she is just a WW2 spy novelist! Her people could live now, and respond psychologically in the same ways. Her strong characters are people you can admire and wish you could meet. Her villains are people you would stay away from now. Her ability to make these people real is, as I say, eerie. Her books are keepers--ones to read and reread, always with something more you missed the first time. When she writes about Salzburg and Brittany, you know she was there, noticing every detail, giving you a strong sense of place as individual as the place itself. Even if you don't usually enjoy this genre, read this book. You'll be glad you did. c-6
