Johann’s pace was steady and unbroken. He moved over the more difficult ground quickly, without slackening speed, as if he expected Lennox to follow easily. managed it. Either the brief rest at Schönau, or the stimulus of the two Allied officers’ arrival, or the sense of necessity which surrounded him had chased away the fatigue of his muscles. Or perhaps they had never really forgotten the long months of training in the desert. They were obeying him, anyway. He had a feeling of growing confidence.

  • Helen MacInnes is one of the best novel writers I have ever read. I have bought and read 18 of her novels and ordered the rest. Her spy novels are well structured and her descriptions of the people and country she goes through are excellent. She reads you into the story from the first and makes you feel you are there with the characters. I have read hundreds of books since retiring and unlike some authors that you have to read 30 to 60 pages to get interested, with her books you are in the story with the first sentence. There are one or two authors writing today that are in her class but not many.

  • McInnes is one of my favorite authors. Even though her books were written and published during the Cold War years, somehow they are still appropriate and continue to remind one that "evil still lurks in the minds of men". Her complex characters are well developed and and so effectively described that they are vividly pictured in the mind's eye and serve as "illustrations" which enhance the plot.

  • I enjoy Macinnes' writing, and reading her books. Except this one. I like action and adventure, and this is more of a character study. It wasn't what I was expecting from her, and I was disappointed.

  • You are there and can see the peoplemail, places and feel the emotions.

  • Not my favorite Helen McInnes book, but you still feel as if you can see the Alpine countryside which she so wonderfully describes.

  • Very good.

  • Great Helen MacInness novel.

  • As a fan of Helen Macinnes, I was thrilled to be able to purchase her books for my Kindle. My paperback books had gotten well worn and needed replacing. Re-reading Horizon again was a treat. Although not as long as some of her books, the story line was still well-written and exciting.
