Touchfeather

Touchfeather - Jimmy Sangster

Set in the 60's with a young Katy Touchfeather as the main character, is a spy novel written by well known screenwriter Jimmy Sangster. Katy is an operative for a deep-state organization that she doesn't even know the name of, but is sent on missions, and her latest is to find who killed her husband. It is fun, if you can get beyond the 60's morals of free love, with the intrigue spanning the globe. She falls in love easily, and into beds even more easily, but that in is reminiscent of 007. Perhaps that was the goal of Mr. Sangster-- to make a young female version of James Bond. I wasn't totally disappointed in the book, and due to the genre and the era it was written in, I sort of expected the permissive attitude towards intimacy. Of course it was dated as well, written in the time well before cell phones or internet, so all of Ms. Touchfeather's spying must be done without the aid of any of that. All in all, an entertaining read
