Return to Department Z in this classic thriller from John Creasey.

London, 1941. In the unending darkness of the London Blackout, an assassin slinks through the night, striking down victims with deadly accuracy. His targets are agents, killed whilst on watch.

Department Z are baffled. Who is the silent killer—and how is he managing to take down the best trained agents in Britain?

Gordon Craigie, Department Z’s fearless leader, soon finds himself faced with the toughest challenge of his career—to catch the killer before his deadly skill falls into enemy hands, putting all of Europe in grave danger…
