By the CWA Gold Dagger award-winning author of Other Paths to Glory What does the chairman of the new Atlantic Defence Committee have to do with the American Civil War? And why was a top CIA trouble-shooter needed as a middleman? And why was that middleman looking for David Audley, senior analyst for British Intelligence?

Unfortunately for the ambitious, and usually desk-bound, Latimer, the opportunity was twice as deadly as it was intriguing.

But what is the secret Audley shares with the half-Italian Richardson, now frightened into hiding somewhere in Italy? For once David Audley has no idea and the race is on to find the elusive Major. But Audley's objective is fast being overtaken by modern political imperatives - ones very different from the black and white certainties of the old Cold War days . . .

But Major O'Conor, ex-liaison officer with the Yugoslav Partisans, is conducting his own private war.

So it is unfortunate for him that two interpreters attached to his task force happen to be Second-Lieutenant Audley and Corporal Butler, already revealing the cunning and resourcefulness that, in earlier novels, has taken them to the very top of their field. Major O'Conor's startling objective remains unknown to everyone except himself until the final pages - where a shattering surprise lies in store.
