Product Details


“References to J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis ground this book firmly in the postwar period in Oxford. Forrester has to cast aside his PTSD and rely on the skills developed from his espionage experience to ferret out the culprit and motive. A dashing new hero has been born; recommend for readers of Jack Higgins and Joseph Kanon.” – Library Journal starred review

“vivid…non-stop action… promising postwar series” – Booklist

“‘Gavin Scott’s debut offers a lively mix of espionage, post-war Oxford college politics, a classic murder mystery situation (the body is surrounded by unmarked snow) and a dizzying supporting cast of characters which includes Ian Fleming, C.S. Lewis, Thor Heyerdahl and even the young Margaret Thatcher.” - MARTIN EDWARDS

Packed with satisfying twists and turns as the plot moves from snow bound Oxford to Berlin and on to Norway, Fans of Morse will love it! Intelligently plotted and elegantly written, it will delight mystery fans.” - MARK OLDFIELD, bestselling author of THE SENTINEL
