(Featuring Gilbert Larose)
When Gilbert Larose, one-time Australian detective, but now lord of a famous English manor, is approached by the British Secret Service for help on a dangerous mission, all his good resolutions to remain in retirement are forgotten. An elusive master spy of a foreign Power is stealing England's most vital defence secrets; detail after detail of new plans are being carried across the Channel, and the Secret Service is powerless to stop the leakage.
