Is Herbie Kruger’s final stand? He has a chance for redemption. But time is running out; the Quiet Dogs are stirring . . .
After his humiliation in The Garden of Weapons, Big Herbie is still under suspicion. Worse, he has endangered Britain’s top agent in the Kremlin, Stentor. Herbie must make amends. He must manoeuvre Stentor’s rescue form the grasp of the Quiet Dogs . . . And exact revenge, in the final confrontation, on his old enemy General Jacob Vascovsky.
