Staff Reviews

We’re so excited to see Helen MacInnes back in print! One of few women writing within the espionage genre from the 30’s-70’s, her novels can hold their ground against Eric Ambler, John LeCarre, and Alan Furst. North from Rome, written in 1958, tells the story of William Lammiter, a young American playwright, who goes to Rome to mend his broken engagement. However, he soon gets embroiled in hazardous game of international intrigue, where danger and death are never far away. 

— McKenna


A phone call prompts Bill Lammiter, a young American playwright, to follow a former girlfriend to Rome. There Lammiter saves a mysterious Italian girl from a beating. A kidnapping, a battle in a Renaissance villa, a shrewd gamekeeper, a chance snapshot and a touring preppy contribute to the excitement and suspense of this Cold War thriller.
