With his Frederick Troy series, John Lawton has been compared to such tophistorical espionage writers as John le Carr� and Len Deighton. Now, in this prequel to Black Out, Lawton transports readers to 1941 London during the German Blitz, brilliantly re-creating the era of ration tickets, air raids, and bomb shelters.
Wolfgang Stahl, an American spy operating undercover as an SS officer, has fled Germany with Hitler's secret blueprints for the invasion of Russia. As American, British, and German operatives race through war-torn London in search of the spy, bodies begin to pile up and the question arises: Are Stahl and his American contact being played by one of their own? In this game of spy vs. spy, only Sergeant Troy of Scotland Yard will be shrewd enough to uncover the truth. (The Washinton Post Book World) Tribune)
Author Biography: John Lawton is a novelist and occasional historian. He lives high up in the English hills, but spends part of the year in New York City and pretends it is balance.
