Although this is the last entry in Helen Macinnes's storied career, it is by no means the least. For those who are not familiar with her work, this author has delighted and thrilled readers both during her lifetime and in the decades since her passing. Ride a Pale Horse is an intricately thought-out thriller and is well-paced with good character development. Well worth any reader's time, although it should be noted that the events and setting of the story are centered in the Cold War, and might, to some, seem dated.

It is really sad that a writer like Macinnes has been largely forgotten. While we can read a Christie or a Gardner, a writer of high calibre is ignored. I have just started to read this book and was very impressed that though it was written in 1984. Macinnes is aware of computer hackers and computer terminologies. Remember she was around 80 that time. Hats off to her.
