あらすじ・解説

Spring, 1919. James ‘Max’ Maxted, former Great War flying ace, returns to the trail of murder, treachery and half-buried secrets. Having left Paris after avenging the murder of his father, Sir Henry Maxted, he is convinced there is more - much more - to be discovered about what Sir Henry had been trying to accomplish. And he suspected elusive German spymaster Fritz Lemmer knows the truth of it.  

Now, undercover in Lemmer’s service but with his loyalty pledged to the British Secret Service, Max sets out on his first - and possibly last - mission for Lemmer. It takes him to the far north of Scotland - to the Orkney Isles, where the German High Seas Fleet has been impounded in Scapa Flow, its fate to be decided at the conference table in Paris.  

His mission: to recover and transport a document held aboard one of the German ships. But what that document contains will force him to break cover and race south, towards London. Can he survive long enough to deliver it?

Yet another cliffhanger

OK. Book 2. But nothing to indicate it’s a continuation except when I got to the end of book 1 it just finished. The promised first chapter of book 2 didn’t materialise. Nor did the promised first chapter of book 3 at the end of book 2. How many more books will it take to finish this saga, without it being made clear they are NOT separate books about the same characters, but continuations. Also very irritated at the beginning that the narrator kept referring g to SCAPA FLOW rather than SCARPA FLOW how I’ve always to before. Four stars is generous considering how let down I feel.

a good way to take your money!

whilst the story is good, the author has eked it out to at least 3 books to force you to carry on. Had i realised this would be the case i would not have become ensnared in this money making venture. Shame on you Mr Goddard, and you Audible for colluding in this shameless entrapment of your customers. Avoid.

Disappointing ending. Felt cheated

This is a complex story and you have to stick with it but the end did not reward you. I shall not be listening to the next book

Great!!

Great second novel in the series
I am looking forward to listening to the last book in the series. I have always liked Robert Goddard s novels and he has surpassed himself with this series. Made better by excellent reading by Elliott Chapman I won't say anymore as I don't want to give any of the plot away.
