Everyone was entitled to bury his mother.

Except, it seemed, Leo Panuska.

All hell broke out in the Glasshouse when Leo vanished. SIS agents don't disappear - unless they're defecting.

Had he really gone back to Czechoslovakia to bury his mother?

And what should they do now that he's resurfaced and wants help to get out?

In Prague, alone and hunted by the secret police, Leo is sheltered by Eliska, a beautiful young dissident.

Together they uncover a horrifying story of treachery and dishonour involving Leo's father and the betrayal of a partisan group to the Nazis in the dying days of the war.

His father's diaries reveal the identity of the real traitor.

And Leo wants revenge.

Back in the Glasshouse they're not so sure.

If Leo is not a double-agent his actions make him a security risk.

And if he's discovered their secrets they can't take any chances...

For Leo Panuska the nightmare is only just beginning...

Czechmate is a classic Cold War thriller by a master of the genre.
