Cold War Naval Action!
29 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story is based on a spy at a naval base in Devon, who is leaking secrets to the Russians and who asks another officer, who is one of his closest friends, to help him. This officer offers to help, but quickly comes to realise that his friend is mixed up in something pretty serious! The relationship between the 2 officers gives the story more tension and the way the spy is trailed around London is excellent!

The naval authority's need to find out what secrets have and are being leaked mean they need to get under the skin of the the spy's friend and to this end the pretty "Jane Day" is brought in, to find out what the friend has found out. Her efforts in delaying the friend from leaving her hotel room & returning to his own are graphically described....

A great story, well written and a real page turner! If anyone can get me a copy on video or DVD I should be very grateful!
