    Summary

    A ramshackle trawler for his first command, an unsettlingly attractive sublieutenant, and danger in the fjords of Norway. For Lieutenant Ralph Lanyon it's only the first five months of 1940. But it's not a romantic story.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A magnificent novel in the style of the original canon, with a lovely balance of dialogue, exposition, description, and action. I'm not qualified to assess how accurate the historical details are, but the tale has the flavor of novels I've read which were written during or immediately after World War II. Except for the final line - whose full impact can only be appreciated by readers who know what's coming next - the novel can be read without knowledge of the canon. I wish that Naraht would write long stories more frequently, because the results are always excellent.

    Summary

    September, 1946. An airman’s body washed up on a beach brings Lord Peter and Harriet to Barlock, Somerset. To Lord Peter, the dead pilot represents unfinished business. He is the latest in a series of deaths linked to “X”, a shadowy figure who uses his connections within Bridstow’s close-knit homosexual community to extort military intelligence from vulnerable men in high-level roles. A chance encounter with an old college acquaintance hands Harriet a loose end which may have the power to unravel all X’s intrigues.

    Summary

    And so now, at the age of thirty-one, a good ten years older than most of the debutantes to the world he had entered, Nigel was exploring what London had to offer and, thus far, had been really only an observer, and of course co-conspirator in the endless labyrinthine intrigues of Bim’s romantic affairs.

    Summary

    'Shaking himself a little, John methodically took off his new uniform jacket and then sat on the bed to remove his boots. New boots as well, issued on his return to Britain, stiff and tight and warm. Boots that had not marched or paced, boots that had none of the earth of Poland on them, boots without holes, without part of the laces removed for other projects.
    That part of his life was over.'

     

     Back in Britain following the escape, John is alone with the impossible questions.
