From the moment when Douglas, a torpedo bomber pilot, became a double agent, he was marked for extinction by both sides. In the early years of World War II, Naval Intelligence saw him as dangerously unreliable while the GRU discovered that during the Spanish Civil War he supported POUM, anathema to Joseph Stalin who believed they were allies of Trotsky. After he had been awarded the DSC, attempts to murder him began in earnest for the third time. The hope was to kill him in action. Who would strike the first blow?

Louis Janvrin was born in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, on 30th January, 1945. His foster father took the family to Kenya in 1950. During the Mau Mau rebellion against British colonial rule, the author’s mother told him the story of his uncle’s short and heroic life. Research into his uncle’s alleged accident led Louis to suspect that he had been murdered. It is that theme which has formed the narrative of this story.
