June 2, 1996 | David McCumber, David McCumber's latest book, "Playing Off the Rail," is published by Random House. He lives in Livingston, Mont
Novelists love to put ordinary people in extraordinary situations. To take a protagonist out of his own world and put him into a strange, even dangerous or violent circumstance is a delicious temptation for the writer. The result can be humor or suspense. Eric Ambler, a master at this game, has, for more than 50 years, created rather retiring, bumbling and bookish types and plunged them through odd circumstance into international intrigue with agonizing and riveting consequences.

I am positive that she had a whole bunch of feelings that she would like to share with readers. RICHARD H. BOROWSKI Cypress
