Backing the great Army and Navy on the battle front is our invisible force of counterspies who guard the Homefront. In Washington DC a coward betrays his country, and commits suicide. Or is it as simple as that? David Harding investigates to see just how bad the situation really was.
His finding is that the suicide wasn’t over health, or finances, and a search for woman trouble is begun.
A paper trail of the whereabouts of Mr Terrace connects him to a mysterious, dark, attractive woman. The high society woman doesn’t quite match, and David Harding investigates personally. Avery Rollins may be on the look out for a new mark, and David approaches a man who might make good bait.
The colonel is traced traveling around the country with the dark woman, but her description doesn’t match Avery Rollins. What is it that has the red flags raised for David? Will the colonel be in the same danger as Mr Terrace?
A trap is planned, but is the colonel having second thoughts? Can Miss Rollins really be as evil as David makes the charming woman out to be? How will Harding be able to force the issue, and prove to the colonel how the dangerous spy ring works. t
