From Library Journal:
Philip Maclean, an English art student living in France in 1940, escapes to England where he is recruited by British intelligence. He soon returns to France to establish Scorpio, a resistance network. Barely operational, Scorpio is betrayed and Maclean and his followers are rounded up and shipped off to concentration camps. Forty years later British intelligence officer Harry Chapman is assigned to find out who betrayed Scorpio, and why. He quickly learns that others are ready to kill to keep the truth buried forever. Allbeury ( The Lantern Network , LJ 2/15/89) offers a well-written, leisurely excursion into a mild version of espionage with interesting characters engaged in a well-crafted plot. Quietly entertaining, but not for the hard-core spy thriller fan. Recommended for large fiction collections.
