'Ted Allbeury without doubt ranks among the finest genre writers I've read' - Glenn Meade

The year is 1982. As politicians bicker, a neutral Britain's decline accelerates into anarchy. The Prime Minister accepts the Russian offer to 'help restore law and order'. Faced with a national breakdown he has no choice.

Millions collaborate. But as Soviet troops take over Britain's streets, men like Harry Andrews and Jamie Boyle go underground. For them there is only one answer to the life-and-death question: Is freedom worth fighting for?

A nation demoralised, a way of life obliterated: they said it could never happen...but there are flashes of resistance from a freedom loving few...

A senior SIS field officer has gone missing. Thornton is ordered to investigate discreetly. He'd talk to a few people, invent some plausible, probably bureaucratic reason. Check records. Pull back if anyone got too interested. He knew that Fisher, the missing man, was good. Good enough to do things his own way, not the head office way, and get away with it. No money troubles. No indiscretions. Balanced. No question of defection. Thorton soon enters a maze of lies, obstruction and deception surrounding an innocent German girl with extraordinary powers, KGB and CIA plots and counter plots, an East/West kidnapping - and a spy with a conscience.
