Martin Slade wants to bury his past as a saboteur in wartime Denmark and smuggler in postwar Europe. Returning to Denmark as a respectable journalist, he's approached by Birgitte Holtesen, an old flame now married to an elderly trader. Birgitte wants Martin to smuggle something back to English for her--but he refuses. She enlists instead a young musician, Sean Clifford. When Martin returns to England, he's attacked in his flat, and the place is ransacked. And then he learns that Sean has been murdered--and his body horribly mutilated. It's up to him to find the killer. A suspenseful mystery by a master storyteller.
