Pray for a Brave Heart

Pray for a Brave Heart - Helen MacInnes

Danger was like cholera: it had an unguessable way of spreading.


I take it that risk assessments are not high on the agenda of the agents in this story. Nor does this statement consider the limitations imposed on a waterborne bacterium...


Anyway, this book is not for me. The characters read like something out of a Western or out of a gritty American noir novel, and I am no fan of either. 


Also, the setup seems to be very similar to other MacInnes stories: the MC is roped into an adventure by another character in order to liberate or retrieve something (which seems to be jewels stolen by the Nazis in this one), and then a woman character turns up with an odd agenda of her own.
