1919 - The truth has never been in such short supply

Ex-flying ace James 'Max' Maxted's attempt to uncover the secret behind the death of his father, Sir Henry Maxted, has seemingly ended in failure - and his own death.

Unaware of Max's fate, the team continue to pursue their only lead, travelling to Japan in search of a mysterious prisoner held by Sir Henry's old enemy, Count Tomura. Once there, they encounter former German spymaster, Fritz Lemmer, now rebuilding his spy network in the service of a new, more sinister cause.

The quest Max embarked on in Paris will reach its dizzying end at Tomura's castle in the mountains of Honshu - and the full truth of what occurred thirty years before will finally be laid bare...

An exciting tale from start to finish told by a master storyteller. Quite unwittingly I started reading this trilogy with this final volume and am reading them chronologically backwards in time, which actually adds to the intrigue. (So this is what led to ... coming about.) In some ways they hearken back to the best of John Buchan's espionage tales (The Thirty-Nine Steps) of a century ago.

Eat your heart out, Ian Fleming. Robert Goddard's James 'Max' Maxted, ex WWII air ace does it all and then some! For sheer ingenuity and complicated scenarios, this one is very hard to beat.
