"Skillful, bloody and chilling" - John D. Macdonald
A long buried and shocking secret has been uncovered. In 1940, President Roosevelt and Canada's Mackenzie King secretly agreed to abandon the Allies and make peace with Hitler if the Nazis successfully invaded Britain. Decades later, Soviet agents are ready to use this information to shatter the NATO alliance and use the ensuing geopolitical chaos to strengthen their position in Europe.
Only one man stands in their way. Tadeusz Anders - half Polish, half English and totally professional - plunges into a series of cruel and violent manoeuvers to combat the cold-blooded operatives of the KGB
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It deploys an icy and macabre expertise and gives a clinical exposure of the submerged world of international security systems and the men who operate them which is hair-raising...I just couldn't put it down - Victor Canning
