Colonel Butler and Dr Audley, well known to Anthony Price's large public as two of the most brilliant and formidable men in British Intelligence, are fascinatingly at odds throughout their latest adventure. Each is working independently; each is concealing his activities from the other. And each is still keeping a jump or two ahead of the CIA, the KGB, the IRA and other old rivals and enemies.
Dr Audley is officially on holiday. So what's he up to, Colonel Butler wonders, when he turns up at the remote West Country village of Duntisbury Royal, as guest of the young lady of the manor, the grand-daughter of the General Maxwell who, just the other day, was killed by a car bomb.
