Présentation de l'éditeur

Young Anna Travis has been assigned to her first murder case - a series of killings that has shocked even the most hardened of detectives. They started eight years ago - now the body count is up to six. The method of killing is identical, the backgrounds of the girls identical - all drug-users and prostitutes. Then a seventh body is found. The modus operandi is the same - but the victim is a young student with the 'face of an angel'. The profile of the murderer has changed dramatically.
Determined to earn the respect of her male colleagues, Anna stumbles on a vital piece of information which links one man to the killings, a much-loved actor on the brink of international stardom. His arrest would create a media frenzy. But if he were found innocent, his wouldn't be the only career over - Anna's hard fought for reputation would be destroyed once and for all … --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Please, please proofread 20 avril 2016
Par Lolly - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have read this book a few times before, though not for ten years or so. It's a delightful book. Literate, suspenseful, with nicely detailed relationships etc.

However, the frequent typos (whether missing or incorrect punctuation, misspellings or the substitution of a wrong word) were so very grating that I wished I had bought an old print edition. Project Gutenberg has more competent and dedicated proofreaders. Maybe Kindle decided it didn't need to proof at all. It's extremely irritating to buy a copy of a well-loved book and find jarring errors sprinkled throughout.

Tell you what, Kindle editors. I'll proof for you, and then you send out corrected versions. Literate readers will be so grateful!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dated but really good thriller. 24 septembre 2014
Par JS - Publié sur Amazon.com

Dated but exciting. About 1/3 of the book is a justification for WWII - and since it was written in 1940 and aimed at building support among English speakers (Americans seem to be a target audience), that makes sense. But you can skim over the repeated justifications (which history proved to be authentic predictions of the horrors to come), and read for the thriller. A bright young couple of academics (he is, she's the 'wife' but well-educated) are asked to do some traveling in eastern Europe just before war is declared. They are asked to find an undercover spy who's gone missing. They follow clues given them city-by-city from Paris to Berlin to somewhere near the Polish border and then to Italy. The pre-war towns are well-described, and the fear of the future is palpable. The Nazis are already holding power, and the changes in even small village life are well-described. At some points you really fear for the lives of our hero and heroine. But there are some elements that strike a modern reader as just funny - like climbing a mountain wearing a nice sweater and tweeds - we just don't have the style from that period! I could see Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner in the lead roles if anyone every made this into a movie.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The product of a much more innocent age 25 mai 2015
Par webgeekstress - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Or maybe I'm just jaded. In particular, though, and without going into spoiler-ish details, the resolution strikes me as much too easy and (relatively) painless, or at least non-fatal. I'm also disappointed that Frances ends up being so much the damsel in distress. Nonetheless, I mostly enjoyed this episode of amateur espionage in pre-WWII Nazi Germany.

It must also be said that the Kindle version of this book is, alas, deeply flawed. Besides irritating typos, including misplaced punctuation and bizarre misspellings, there seem also to be entire lines of text that are either missing or misplaced. Seriously, there is no excuse for publishers to pay so little attention to the production of e-books.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book, weak but not awful Kindle edition 24 septembre 2013
Par James M. Rawley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
It's nice to have Helen MacInnes available on Kindle. ABOVE SUSPICION, her first novel, is a good thriller about a British professor and his wife -- ordinary people, in the Eric Ambler tradition -- on a spy mission in Nazi Germany.

Some of the other reviewers have suggested the characterization is clichéd. I disagree. It's quick and shallow, as befits a thriller, but the Nazis are presented fairly, and the chilling scene where the heroine hears a terrible scream from the Jewish quarter, and the police not only do not look into it, but prevent her from trying to do so either -- that scene, I believe, comes from real life. Nazi Germany was a deeply unpleasant place.

Indeed, what's unbelievable is not that the Germans are menacing, but that the protagonists are able to get away from them. It takes some tricky plotting to find them a good way out. But MacInnes controls her pace and place-setting so well that we accept the escapes when they happen.

EXCEPT for the Kindle. Like so many Kindle editions, this one has errors here and there we can see, and perhaps many more which we can't see. For a long time all a reader might notice is the occasional unnecessary, comma. But then, right at the climax of the book, come three lines missing from page 300 or so, appearing on about page 303, and a general feeling that as much as a page of text may have dropped out entirely while all that misplacement was going on.

Reading a Kindle is like finding a half-destroyed set of books in a burned-down building. How lucky we are to get things so cheap -- and how sad it is how much we have to miss, in payment for all that convenience.

If I were a real MacInnes fan, I'd recommend getting a print version and eating the extra cost. As things stand, I can only warn you: the Kindle ABOVE SUSPICION is good enough to see you home in peacetime, but it wouldn't get you out of Nazi Germany.

I would have given this a 3.5 star instead of a 4 only because I was disappointed how a strong, determined woman from the beginning could be so weak and worrisome as the story progressed. I was so pulling for her to 'snap out of it' and regain her senses and stamina.......but, alas, it took the actions of the 3 male heros to pull it all together. I understand there was a movie made in the 40's from this book - maybe Joan Crawford pulled it off better than the novel read. But, still, it is full of wonderful WWII espionage, Resistance movements, and just the common man giving his all to help when they could easily be killed......where you don't know who to trust, if you're being followed, or being deceived by well meaning peers. I love books like this and Ms McInnes was very skillful making it all come together. However, she would have been appalled by the way Kindle skipped pages and got them out of order, making you go back and try to fit it all back together like a puzzle. Shame on you Kindle!
