‘Against the backdrop of Blitz-hit London, this stylish thriller sees Scotland Yard’s Frank Merlin investigate a tangled conspiracy’ SUNDAY MIRROR

As the Battle of Britain rages above, DCI Frank Merlin and his officers investigate the sudden disappearance of Polish RAF pilot Ziggy Kilinski – while battling the looting unleashed by the chaos and destruction of the Blitz.

Unbeknownst to Merlin and his team, Russian spies have also been set loose on the city – instructed to retrieve Stalin’s lost gold.

Kilinski’s fellow pilots, a disgraced Cambridge don, members of the Polish government in exile and a ruthless Russian gangster are amongst those caught up in Merlin’s enquiries.

Sweeping from Stalin’s Russia to Civil War Spain, Hitler’s Berlin to Churchill’s London, a compelling story of treasure, treachery, and murder unfolds.
