    My parents had a lot of Helen MacInnes’s books in the house when I was growing up; the anti-Communist speeches seemed a bit shoehorned into some of them, but they were always great thrillers.  When I got to be an adult, I was a bit disappointed my life didn’t sweep into great exciting races and chases and spying and escapades in beautiful foreign locales like in MacInnes’s books, or Mary Stewart’s.

    Now who’s gonna start marketing the “Who Is Peter Galt?” merchandise?

    Above Suspicion was my mother’s favorite book – I still have her copy and, like snailspace, I just assumed that my life would be like MacInnes or Stewart wrote it!  Spies! Thrills! Romance!

    “Sporting his Oak”, eh?  So that’s the Oxford euphemism is it?
