France has fallen and London is being bombed day and night. The country is braced for invasion. But in the face of Britain’s bulldog defiance, Hitler’s head of intelligence believes that only Churchill’s removal will win Germany the war.
At his London apartment, an old man is pushed over the banister and falls to his death. Inspector Quaid of Scotland Yard is convinced that this is a run-of-the-mill case, but when his junior, Detective Trave, discovers that the victim was the ex-chief of MI6, he suspects a more sinister motive, and uncovers a much grander scheme by a mole inside the Secret Service to assassinate Churchill himself.
Trave is on his own. And time is running out for him to unravel the plot before the assassin receives his final orders from Berlin.
