Publisher's Summary

 

Richard and Frances Myles are preparing for their annual European summer vacation in 1939 when they are visited at their Oxford college by old friend Peter Galt, who has a seemingly simple job for them. But in the heightened atmosphere of prewar Europe, nobody is above suspicion. In fact, the husband and wife are being carefully monitored by shadowy figures.

Above Suspicion was MacInnes’ breakthrough book, a best seller published in 1941 and released as a movie in 1943, directed by Richard Thorpe and starring Joan Crawford and Fred MacMurray.

Suspenseful and exciting, but not for everyone

I was thrilled to see Helen MacInnes books coming to Audible. I enjoyed reading most of her books 30 or so years ago. Helen MacInnes wrote Above Suspicion in 1941. Many books from that era do not do well with modern audiences. It's almost like watching old classic movies, you cringe a little, but if the movie is good, you want to watch it again and again. I am delighted to "be dragged across Europe" hiding in plain sight from enemies, in the typical Helen MacInnes way! The story goes at a slower pace than most modern spy novels, but I loved it. Some days I am in the mood for a fast paced thrill ride. This is not that. Fans of MacInnes will love this. Looking forward to other titles as they become available, especially some old favorites.
