(From the publisher):
Summer, 1940. Britain stands alone against the Nazi forces gathering just across the Channel. Invasion seems imminent. In those months of the Battle of Britain, with the Blitz becoming a nightly horror in the major cities, one man represents the unquenchable spirit of England. Winston Churchill, the recently appointed Prime Minister.
The German leaders hatch their scheme - kill Churchill and the heart will be torn from England. Their plans reach John Standish - leader of 'The Killers'. After their tragic adventures in Paris and Warsaw (See 'To Win and to Lose) this secret group of criminals and ex-criminals again combine against the Nazis, with the vital aim of saving the Prime Minister from assassination. The trail of murder leads Standish to occupied Holland and back to bomb-torn London for the chilling climax. On the way, there is a little love. But, where Standish goes, there is always death. Bloody and bizarre!
It was not just the R.A.F. who had their finest hour in 1940...
