Publisher's Summary

London, 1952. At first it seems the Great Fog has claimed another victim: a drunk, perhaps, stumbling into the water. But Max Stensness was sober when he died, and in the hours before his death, the young biochemist had claimed to be in possession of a secret that could change the world.

Having traded MI5 for New Scotland Yard, Detective Inspector Herbert Smith thinks he's left the murky world of espionage behind him, until he begins retracing the final footsteps of Max Stensness. The CIA, KGB, and MI5 are all vying to get their hands on the dead man's secret, and as the body count rises, it's clear that some will stop at nothing to claim it.

What the Critics Say

"Breathless....with numerous twists and a gloriously far-fetched climax....the atmospheric portrait of London leaves the greatest impression." (Evening Standard)
"Oozes authenticity...the plot plumbs fascinating depths...some wonderfully unpredictable twists. Mystery at its best." (Guardian)

    "You will like this murky story"

    What do we look for? A good story, of course!
    Are you seeking suspense, intrigue? Here you have it. Well told with unexpecteded satisfaction -at several levels. A little out of the ordinary. Try it, you won't be dissappointed. I'm not going to give the game away!

    "Excellent"

    Quite an unusual book; set in 1952 and about a policeman. Slightly slow but generally well paced; I found this to be one of the most interesting books I've 'read' in quite a while. A really good last couple of chapters - well worth getting!

    I like a wide range of books especially when I discover something new and great. I like to mix some classics in with the crime and sci fi .

    "Intrgueing atmospheric"

    Atmospheric book strongly located in its time and place 1952 London fog. Claims to be a true story it's certainly one which evokes the time an place.
