What was the secret of desolate, Soviet-controlled Barren Island in the Arctic Sea? What happened to the Lapp Eskimo who visited Barren and never returned? What was the eyeless steel monster that terrified his fellows? Counter-espionage sent a top agent to investigate. He vanished. Clearly, no possible cover story would protect the next British agent to arrive, but someone had to find the answers. Counter-espionage chose a killer - they sent Simon Larren.
