David Garth, an employee of the Ministry of Propaganda, is brought in to help Department Z on a mission that has already taken the life of one agent. Desperate for vengeance, Agents Mark and Mike Errol will need Garth’s assistance to catch the cold-blooded killer, ‘Frankenstein’.
After finding his flat burgled with a body lying on the floor, Garth is determined to help the agents clear his own name. But the manhunt unearths a plot with an international objective: to halt America’s assistance in the second World War.
No Darker Crime is the 20th book in the Department Z series, and was originally published in 1943.
