Helen MacInnes knew the espionage world well and there's a believability to her characters, if not always their high-minded idealism.

For British agent Tony Lawton, hunting down the Russian operative – the 'agent in place' – is a welcome challenge. But for Chuck's brother, the journalist Tom Kelso, and his beautiful wife, Thea, the affair has unleashed a very special terror

Almost two weeks of silence ft the apartment. In the evenings, with all engagements cancelled, he waited once more. But the signal never came. All communications were cut off. He was isolated. Temporarily, of course

I love Helen MacInnes' work: she was a master of "undercover", with a voice as authentic as Clancy, as erudite as Tolkien or Lewis, and possessed of an historian's mind, with more than a nod to the humanity of her characters. She was quite prolific as a writer, starting out in the WWII years and leading well into the Cold War. A Brit, she was very well traveled, although she and her husband ultimately made their home here in the states.
This book had plenty of tension, was fast paced, full of surprises, and advised by the worldview of a person who understands that freedom has a tendency to vanish overnight. Freedom is not something that "benevolent governments" love to give their people for the fun of it, and must be vigilantly guarded and fought for when necessary.

Start with 'Assignment in Brittany' and work your way through all Helen MacInnes' books. If you like spy and espionage novels written by a woman who was there during the wars, this book "Agent in Place" will keep you interested throughout. Her characters become friends as they weave through the pages. It is as if you are there with them.

This is a spy story that could happen again in our present day...or maybe it is happening. Very, very intriguing.

As far as I know, no mention of only a part of "Agent in Place" was included in the hardcover. What's up? When opening the hardcover, I found the words: Volume 1. How do I get the rest of story? Order another book? Maybe it will be Volume 2?

This is an unusual MacInnes book. For one thing, there is no romance plot. Also, there is no real central character. And the setting shifts dramatically partway through the book. It was strongly influenced by Watergate, the (one-sided?) rush towards detent, and probably most directly, the "Pentagon Papers."

It starts out from the point of view of a Soviet deep mole, now a Congressional aide in Washington DC. He is instructed to procure a certain document. The man who procures the document is loyal to the US, but thinks the least sensitive part should be published openly. So he leaks it to the press, but he has no idea that his friend is a Soviet spy. He leaves the spy alone with the document for a short time, and the damage is done.

Then the focus shifts to the the brother and sister-in-law of the dupe who released the document. The action also shifts to Europe, where a high ranking western spy (who had to flee Russia when the document revealed his identity) is being debriefed and protected.

But the Soviet agent turns up again, and so does the brother who exposed the document. And why is the escaped agent behaving so strangely? Is he who he seems?

The action intensifies as secrets become dangerous and lies become weapons.

I began reading Helen MacInnes' books when I was a teenager. Now that I have grandchildren in that age bracket, her books are still among the best.

The topics are well researched; the characters believable; locales graphically presented; the story line ties up neatly and securely on all points.

For anyone for enjoys spy thrillers - no matter what the era - Helen MacInnes is more than a good read. She is a must.

First reads should be "Decision at Delphi", "While Still We Live", "The Double Image".
