Summary (From the publisher):

Who is Janus, the man who looks both East and West?

Tweed must solve the secret of his identity before it is too late. The terrible fact is that he knows Janus has to be one of his own European sector chiefs - Hugh Grey, Guy Dalby, Harry Masterson or Erich Lindemann.

The murder of one of Tweed's agents triggers the desperate search which takes Tweed to Hamburg, Lübeck - the Baltic port perched on the border with East Germany - then on to Copenhagen and Oslo, and back to the lonely flat lands of East Anglia.

As time runs out, Tweed realises he may also be tracking a mass murderer - that an appalling scandal in London must be avoided at all costs. Then, from East Germany, the order goes out - Kill Tweed...

Aided by foreign correspondent Bob Newman, Tweed continues the chase, employing his own unorthodox methods to bring together the strands of an insidious conspiracy. But who is Diana Chadwick, the girl with a nostalgia for the 1930s - and why does Tweed insist she is the key witness? And what is the role of the strange Dr. Berlin, reputed to be the Albert Schweitzer of today?

Colin Forbes has written his most gripping, true-to-life epic in The Janus Man - a spellbinding novel.
