The betrayal of his fellow prisoners by a British officer in a Japanese POW camp in Hong Kong in 1941 returns to haunt the 21st Century on the streets of London. The son of one of the POWs has been murdered by a hit-and-run driver to prevent him from finding the traitor who condemmed 1,200 men to die, locked in the hold of a sinking ship while being transported as slave labour toJapan. The hit-and-run victim leaves behind a briefcase containing his research into the identity of the traitor......and a letter. A letter adressed to John Gunn, an agent in the British Intelligence Directorate. This forcess John Gunn into a deadly conflict, not only with the Japanese, Albanian and Russian Mafias, but also with his own Direcdtorate.
