In the summer of 1939, "who would suspect dignified Oxford don Richard Myles and his lovely young wife, Frances, of being spies? Or that their innocent European vacation on the eve of World War II was really the cover for a dangerous mission that had already cost the lives of skilled British agents? It looked foolproof-but it wasn't. Somewhere along the way they had been betrayed. Suddenly they are plunged into a perilous world where no one is above suspicion."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall

To Strang, danger was no object. He could take care of himself. But he had reckoned without Cecilia, his beautiful photographer. For when he fell in love with her, he unwittingly gave his enemies the one weapon they needed. If Strang was going to be stubborn . . . well, there was always the girl."; 6" - 7" Tall
