Plot Summary

On being demobbed at the end of the war, Canadian flyer Laurence Gerard returns to France to discover who ordered the killing of a group of Resistence fighters including his new bride. He identifies Vichy collaborator Marcel Jarnac, who is reported as dead himself. Not believing this, Gerard follows the trail to Argentina where it is apparent that Nazism is also far from dead. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Quotes Melchior Incza: Senor, I suspect that you were a very fine flyer and before that perhaps a promising shoe salesman, but you're a gross amateur at intrigue. You cannot expect to catch a trout by shouting at it from the riverbank proclaiming that you're a great fisherman. You need a hook with feathers on it.
