MacInnes in Greece
on November 23, 2004
MacInnes was my favorite thriller novel writer, and this is one of her better (but not best) works. Set in the heart of the cold war, it has all the hallmarks of a MacInness book.
An educated and intelligent (but not "intelligence") writer is visting Greece to research a book. But his usual photographer vanishes, so his publisher supplies him with another. The replacement turns out to be a beautiful woman, and the missing photographer (and friend) turns out to be associated with former Communist-supported anti-Nazi partisans.
Things get confusing, and then they get dangerous. Is his friend still alive? Are the quickly-bonding pair in any danger? Who can they trust in a foreign land? Throw in some ancient ruins and some modern spies, and you have an exciting story.
Watch for one of the Greek intelligence agents to make a return appearance in THE DOUBLE IMAGE.
