My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The next instalment in the Tom Wilde series picks up just months after the last volume and covers the period at the very beginning of the Second World War. Wilde and his girlfriend/fiancee are inadvertently caught up in a plot to infiltrate a German agent into England as part of a plan to ensure the Americans stay out of the war. The plot involves murder, betrayal, and personal danger for our hero and those close to him, and the story has a certain ring to it that lends authenticity.
The times in Cambridge are changing but Rory Clements captures the nature of a university town such as Cambridge in the terrible inter-war years with great effectiveness and draws the reader into a marvellous tale.
