Above Suspicion

By Helen MacInnes
AN exciting tale of British secret-service work in Germany before the present war. A young Oxford don and his charming wife, who have habitually spent their vacations on the Continent, are chosen by Military Intelligence as being ‘above suspicion’ and hence able to move about in Germany as simple tourists. They are quickly spotted by the alert agents of the Gestapo, and their paths are beset by stratagems and violence. All ends well, as all should end in this kind of story, and they return to England devoted to their service, and doubtless enjoying the pleasant feeling that they belong in the gallant fellowship of the heroes and heroines of Buchan, Oppenheim, and Deeping.
