The first book in John Creasey’s Department Z series.
Millions of lives are at stake if a sinister international conspiracy succeeds. It’s down to England’s elite detective agency, Department Z, to make sure that doesn’t happen.
They’ve got to keep things quiet, too. Discretion is something that the Honourable James Quinion knows only too well – it’s all part and parcel of being a member of the Secret Service. Department Z is described as ‘a home for bachelors with a suicidal turn of mind…’ Its agents ready themselves for this high-profile, high-danger job. Quinion will find himself right in the firing line and in personal danger – how will he keep the conspiracy under control and under wraps?
