MY COMMENTS

       The blurb on the covers describes the series as "in the tradition of Helen MacInnes" and it does strive for that high goal. It doesn't quite make it but it comes close and that in itself is impressive.
       The action in the books is fairly standard but the author is able to convey the idea that it is an inexperienced but independent woman who is having to deal with the danger. She is not a shrinking violet begging for some one to save her. She gets mad and takes actions herself. That these actions are not always the wisest only make them more realistic and enjoyable.
