''Sabotage' is a dramatic story of fifth-columnism. As one would expect in work by Catherine Shepherd, it is not melodrama, neither is it 'reportage,' the retreatment of a specific happening in the near past. Miss Shepherd is imaginatively concerned with picturing what happens when the cancer of fifth-columnism spreads in our domestic midst — how it can break up a home, a friendship, a marriage! From the individual example of Richard Gale, the schoolmaster, and his wife Karen, one can hardly fail to reason outward, toward generalisation. Both as a warning against the subtle infiltration of Nazi methods, and as a drama of human relations, 'Sabotage' should strike home hard.'
