In the first book in John Creasey’s Department Z series, millions of lives are at stake if a sinister international conspiracy succeeds…

It’s down to England’s elite intelligence agency, Department Z, to make sure that doesn’t happen. They’ve got to keep things quiet, too. Discretion is something that the honourable James Quinion knows only too well – it’s all part and parcel of being a member of the Secret Service.

Department Z is described as ‘a home for bachelors with a suicidal turn of mind…’ and the agents ready themselves for this high-profile, high-danger job.

As Quinion finds himself in the firing line, he struggles to keep the conspiracy under wraps…and under control.

The Death Miser was originally published in 1933.
