Desperate to escape the suffocating heat of London, cousins Mark and Mike Errol, set out for Richmond for a relaxing boat ride—unaware that their peaceful afternoon will be violently interrupted by a Department Z mission.
The events of that afternoon change the Errols’ lives quickly and drastically. Recruited into the Department Z, the Errols embark on one of the secret agency’s most treacherous cases. The League of the Hundred-and-One are terrorizing the people of Britain and holding the country ransom. With 1 hundred and one reasons to panic, can Department Z defeat this elusive league before its nation crumbles?
Panic! is the 13th book in the Department Z series, and was originally published in 1939.
