As Kathryn begins to unravel a complex web of espionage involving the intelligence services of three former Communist countries, she also becomes embroiled in the activities of the British Security Service and the Metropolitan Police Counter-Terrorism Command as they try to recover from a previously undetected Soviet master-stroke.Meanwhile, in Bradford there have been signs of impending trouble as three young men are killed when their car explodes, and further violence takes place in the heart of the city’s University. But it is only when Kathryn’s investigations uncover a long-standing arrangement for the funding of subversive organisations that realisation dawns that they are in a race against time to unveil the mysterious Commander who appears to be preparing a massive terrorist attack against Britain . . . . .
