Book Description

7 Sep 2012
Just another routine overseas assignment. That's what successful young New York architect Ken Strang thought when a national travel magazine sent him to Europe to sketch Greek ruins.
What he did not know, until it was too late, was that from the moment he boarded the ship, he had become the pawn in a murderous game of international intrigue.
To Strang, danger was no object. He could take care of himself, but he had reckoned without Cecilia, his beautiful photographer. When he fell in love with her, he gave his enemies the one weapon they needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars 50's Spy story. 21 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A well written spy story set in the 50's. A lot of back ground infomation re the political situation at the time relevant to the storyline. Characters are down to earth and "real". Am becoming accustomed to the high tech approach of modern day stories especially spy ones, and this is a low tech story - not a mobile phone is sight!! - and therefore the story moves more slowly. However, this doesn't detract from the interesting twists in the work.
A good read - will read more of MacInnnes' books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decision at Delphi 30 Dec 2005
By Nemeseos - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Decision at Delphi was the first novel by Helen MacInnes that I had ever read. Having visited some of the places that the book mentions(It occurs primarily in Athens, Greece)made it even more realistic. It was a great novel of intrigue where I found myself rooting for some characters, while warning others not to go there or do that(out loud). I got really involved in the book. I have read and re-read the book many times over the years and consider it one of my top 10 favorite books I've read in my lifetime. It's always a good read, that is, every 2-3 years when I read it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars MacInnes in Greece 23 Nov 2004
By Mike Garrison - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
MacInnes was my favorite thriller novel writer, and this is one of her better (but not best) works. Set in the heart of the cold war, it has all the hallmarks of a MacInness book.

An educated and intelligent (but not "intelligence") writer is visting Greece to research a book. But his usual photographer vanishes, so his publisher supplies him with another. The replacement turns out to be a beautiful woman, and the missing photographer (and friend) turns out to be associated with former Communist-supported anti-Nazi partisans.

Things get confusing, and then they get dangerous. Is his friend still alive? Are the quickly-bonding pair in any danger? Who can they trust in a foreign land? Throw in some ancient ruins and some modern spies, and you have an exciting story.

Watch for one of the Greek intelligence agents to make a return appearance in THE DOUBLE IMAGE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless 17 May 2013
By Stephen C. Hart - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A classic love story set in Greece. Plenty of suspense. Instead of the usual political intrigue, MS McInnes introduces the politics of nihilism - something not often written about. Thoroughly enjoyable.
I recommend this to anyone who likes intrigue. Look at pictures of the Acropolis, Oracle at Delphi, and the Corinthian canal if you've never been to Greece to get a feel for the scenery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decision at Delphi by Helen Macinnes 29 Mar 2013
By J. Wills - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has been one of my all-time favorites for over 20 years. Helen Macinnes is an excellent writer, and has captured the intrigue of the cold war era. I also helps that I have been to Delphi and was able to picture the scenes in my mind. However, Ms Macinnes writes a great word-picture, so those who haven't traveled to Greece can still picture the scenes. Great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Go There, See That! 29 Nov 2009
By James P. Mccauley - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Marvelous travelogue cum thriller cum romance. As puzzling a journey as Helen M. ever wrote, with recognizable and lovable (or hateful) characters. Warning! after the first 20 or 30 pages you can't put it down.
