Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0143034324, Mass Market Paperback)With his Frederick Troy series, John Lawton has been compared to such top historical espionage writers as John le Carré and Len Deighton. Now, in this prequel to Black Out, Lawton transports readers to 1941 London during the German Blitz, brilliantly re-creating the era of ration tickets, air raids, and bomb shelters.
Wolfgang Stahl, an American spy operating undercover as an SS officer, has fled Germany with Hitler’s secret blueprints for the invasion of Russia. As American, British, and German operatives race through war-torn London in search of the spy, bodies begin to pile up and the question arises: Are Stahl and his American contact being played by one of their own? In this game of spy vs. spy, only Sergeant Troy of Scotland Yard will be shrewd enough to uncover the truth.

"1941. Britain, alone since Dunkirk; Russia, on the brink of war; America, struggling to stay neutral. And in London Wolfgang Stahl, an American spy, late of the SS, is on the run. Captain Calvin M. Cormack, a shy American 'aristocrat', is teamed with Chief Inspector Stilton to find him before the Germans do. Cal finds himself overwhelmed by the English, and by the demands of Stilton's precocious daughter, Kitty. When things go pear-shaped Cal is ditched by MI6 and disowned by his embassy. His last hope is Kitty's last boyfriend, Sgt. Troy of Scotland Yard" -- p.  of cover.
