Crooked Adam

By D E Stevenson

1940 finds Adam Southey in a mood of bitter resentment: he can’t enlist in the war because he is lame.

But at the school where he is teaching, the headmaster, Sam Cooke, is a brilliant scientist. And Adam suddenly finds that the battleground is not the only place to fight a war — for Dr. Cooke has developed a secret weapon, and enemy agents are after the plans.

Adam and the doctor move to an engineering works in Scotland to build a working model. Here, in the wild beauty of the Highlands, Adam is drawn into a desperate game of cat and mouse with the enemy. He also meets Brenda, who is young and beautiful and in terrible danger…

‘Romantic spy novel with first-class characterisation’ – Manchester Evening News

Call it, if you like, a spy story, but note that it has gained immeasurably by being, also, good D. E. Stevenson’ – New York Times
