Teacher Bob Shaw is ridiculed for claiming a dead Government scientist is still alive.  But when his wife Anne delves into the man’s death in a blazing car, she uncovers a web of mystery and forensic blunders.  If their professor friend faked his death, she begins to suspect a connection with his pioneering work on Britain’s new anti-drone laser weapon, Palladin.


After the couple encounter a poisoned fellow-scientist in her dying moments, their own lives are thrown into jeopardy and they’re forced to abandon their Kent home.  Are their enemy a ruthless brigade of Russian agents known as ‘The Eagle’s Claw’? Or is another, equally sinister force at work?  Ex-national newspaper journalist Tony Bassett tells how the pair win through in this fast-paced spy thriller.

Temporary blurb, subject to change.
