International blackmailers are scheming to rupture relations between Britain and the US. But Bill Loftus, the sturdy second of Department Z, is hot on their trail.
With America’s most powerful industrialists, British peers of the realm, and agents of unknown power all entangled in the conspiracy, international safety is at risk. But unravelling the global plot quickly becomes personal for Loftus when the blackmailers murder someone close to him.
As the stakes rise, a grief-stricken Loftus must use all his professional cool to carry on with the investigation. Will Loftus be able to stop the criminals before the NATO alliance collapses?
Go Away Death is the 17th book in the Department Z series, and was originally published in 1941.
