A British agent with divided loyalties is sent to stop a female spy who is headed back to Germany with stolen atomic secrets. 75,000 first prnting.

Blackwell North Amer
In 1943, America thought it had rounded up all the German spies on its soil. It was wrong. Now Germany's greatest weapon - a woman with special talents, both for tradecraft and for death - is headed home with critical information about the still-developing atomic bomb, and the Allies' chief hope for stopping her is a British agent with an agenda of his own. Originally recruited into MI5 to pose as a double agent, he's been telling the Germans that he'd do anything to free his wife, a prisoner of a Polish concentration camp. This happens to be true. The question is: How much would he really do to set her free? Where are his loyalties, exactly?
As the two spies play cat-and-mouse games across three countries, the ambiguities deepen, each figure showing new sides, each action providing new twists, until at last both agents are swept into a series of climaxes as breathtakingly unpredictable as they are inevitable.

& Taylor

A British intelligence agent battles a woman who is trying to pass the secret of American nuclear research to the Nazis.
