A thrilling mix of espionage, treachery and murder set in the aftermath of the First World War from the master of the triple-cross
   Spring, 1919. James ‘Max’ Maxted, former Great War flying ace, returns to the trail of murder, treachery and half-buried secrets he set out on in The Ways of the World. He left Paris after avenging the murder of his father, Sir Henry Maxted, a senior member of the British delegation to the post-war peace conference. But he was convinced there was more – much more – to be discovered about what Sir Henry had been trying to accomplish. And he suspected elusive German spymaster Fritz Lemmer knew the truth of it.
   Now, enlisted under false colours 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. Max has been sent to recover a document held aboard one of the German ships. What that document contains forces him to break cover sooner than he would have wished and to embark on a desperate race south, towards London, with information that could destroy Lemmer – if Max, as seems unlikely, lives to deliver it...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I have long been a fan of Robert Goddard and have read - and enjoyed - many of his books. I have now read the first two books of this trilogy but unfortunately with a gap of a year in between. There are so many characters that the plot becomes very confusing and it is disappointing to get to the end with nothing resolved. The two books are just not up to the previous standard in my opinion. I do not intend paying for the third volume so will have to leave the plot in abeyance. Very sad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ripped off I really enjoyed the book but, for the second time I am left entirely dissatisfied with the end of the book. It seems like we are buying one book in 3 parts not 3 books and it feels like a rip off. I will buy the 3rd book but under protest being treated like a sheep.
