Alarm bells go off when a British businessman living in Prague - who just happens to be a vital source of information on the Czech electronics industry - is killed in a car crash. The facts don't quite add up and there is an immediate suspicion that he has been snatched or will defect. Willie Caine is dispatched and finds that the man in question is defecting for love - and Willie's protestations that the woman is a professional KGB officer who will drop him as soon as he crosses the line, falls on deaf ears. Burnside and Caine then proceed to make sure he returns to the UK of his own volition and provide him with the information - not necessarily accurate - to ensure he does. Written by garykmcd
