Arcturus Crime Classics showcase unjustly neglected works by great writers from the 1930s - the so-called golden age of crime writing - through to the 1970s. From conventional whodunnits to slick thrillers, the series encompasses every facet of this ever-popular genre.

This fast-paced thriller opens with laconic private eye Rex Carver accepting an apparently straightforward job of tracing a missing young German au pair. Never one to avoid trouble, Carver soon becomes entangled in a dangerous game of international espionage and double dealing.
