The assassination attempt on the American president in London bore the hallmark of the KGB. But with Britain about to hold unilateral talks with the Russians over Berlin, why should Moscow Centre rock the boat? Major Harry Maxim smelled conspiracy. Trouble was, nobody wanted to believe him.

It's all highly unofficial. But that doesn't stop Maxim shooting and pistol-whipping his way from London to East Berlin via the Cotswolds, Eastbourne and Illinois, until he finally tracks down the Crocus List - a group of earnest patriots playing God and soldiers to open the country's eyes to the Russian menace

A chance encounter in an Athens bar with war-time flying buddy sets Jack Clay on the trail of the Nawab of Tungabhadra's missing fortune, hi-jacked out of India years before at the time of partition.

Clay badly needed out. This might be his last chance. But there were others whose needs were as great as Clay's. Men and women who were prepared to lie and cheat, murder and maim, to get to the diamonds first
