First edition. Libray stamp at head of title page and on rear fly leaf, else a fine, clean copy in dust jacket. A contemporary SIS agent investigates the WWII activities of the French Resistance. "Allbeury's favorite of all his books is the story of the Special Operations Executive in occupied France, with a linking story set in the London of the 1970s. It has sympathetically drawn characters and a mystery that endured to the end of the book. It was not difficult to see Allbeury in its leading character, Nicholas Bailey. Bailey was Allbeury's mother's maiden name."
