July 1919. Ex-flying ace James 'Max' Maxted's attempt to uncover the secret behind the death of his father, Sir Henry Maxted, murdered while serving as an adviser with the British delegation to the Paris peace conference, has seemingly ended in failure - and his own death. The trail uncovered by him leads to Japan and a mysterious prisoner held by Sir Henry Maxted's old enemy, Count Tomura. Unaware of Max's fate, the team he has recruited to finish the job are already there, where their paths cross that of former German spymaster, Fritz Lemmer, now rebuilding his spy network in the service of a new, more sinister cause. In the days and weeks ahead, the quest Max embarked on in Paris will reach its dizzying end at Tomura's castle in the mountains of Honshu - and the full truth of what occurred 30 years before will finally be laid bare.

An exciting tale from start to finish told by a master storyteller. Quite unwittingly I started reading this trilogy with this final volume and am reading them chronologically backwards in time, which actually adds to the intrigue. (So this is what led to ... coming about.) In some ways they hearken back to the best of John Buchan's espionage tales (The Thirty-Nine Steps) of a century ago.

Eat your heart out, Ian Fleming. Robert Goddard's James 'Max' Maxted, ex WWII air ace does it all and then some! For sheer ingenuity and complicated scenarios, this one is very hard to beat.
