Helen MacInnes (1907-1985) was the Scottish-born American author of 21 spy novels. Dubbed "the queen of spy writers", her books have sold more than 25 million copies in the United States alone and have been translated into over 22 languages. Several of her books have been adapted into films, such as Above Suspicion (1943), with Joan Crawford, and The Salzburg Connection (1972).From AudioFile:
In this spy novel intelligence agents from several countries vie to lay their hands on the contents of a Nazi chest, which has lain for some time in a lake. The story slightly predates the days of explicit description and seems a little tame by 1990's standards. The tape quality and clarity of the recording are excellent. While the cross-gender differentiation is good, the male character differentiation is only fair. The British Pacey's attempts to employ an American accent are somewhat tedious. This is particularly bothersome in the character of the New York-based publishing executive. Overall, however, the performance is very good. J.D.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
