By Philip McCutchan
When Commander Shaw discovers a corpse with the letters CORPSE branded into it, he has no idea that it will mark the beginning of his most dangerous mission yet.
When the body of a civil servant is found with the same branding, 6D2 assign Shaw and Miss Mandrake to investigate.
What they uncover is the Committee of Responsible Persons for Selective Eradication, who demand the total surrender of Britain to them. If the demands are not met, ships, filled with nuclear waste, will be detonated in the ports all around the UK.
Shaw’s only lead is a religious sect in Spain. But what connects the church of the Flood Fearers to this terrorist group?
With bullets flying and the threat of nuclear Armageddon in the air, Shaw and Miss Mandrake are in a race against time.
Philip McCutchan (1920-1996) grew up in the naval atmosphere of Portsmouth Dockyard and developed a lifetime’s interest in the sea. Military history was an early interest resulting in several fiction books, from amongst his large output, about the British Army and its campaigns, especially in the last 150 years.
