Death was falling, swiftly, ruthlessly. It made you very conscious of living.
After eight years abroad, Michael Stephen is back in Second World War London--the fortunate survivor of a shipwreck. Avoiding the incessant bombing of the Blitz, he instead gets swept up into something even more perilous--a mystery involving an international plot. It is one which will strike at the heart of the British war effort.
The plot takes Stephen on an amazing journey of subterfuge, secret codes, nightclubs, spies, rural England and romance.
Danger at my Heels was originally published in 1943. This new edition includes an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
