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

The greed of one man has meant the death of others…

When two impossibly rich oil tycoons are found murdered in their own homes, a matter of life and death becomes one of national security.

Jim Burke of Department Z is called in to stop the ambitious murderer from killing again—but it isn’t long before Burke’s investigation is derailed by an attempt on his own life.

Will he be able to save Britain from this latest threat and escape unharmed? Burke knows that he’s up against something big, but is it too big for this new Secret Service man to handle?

The Terror Trap is the seventh book in the Department Z series, and was originally published in 1936.
