In New York he is shocked and sickened to encounter a now-alien America increasingly dominated by right-wing extremists, including a new radio celebrity, Walter Ventnor. After a tense encounter with his friend and mentor William Stephenson, he agrees to temporarily pursue a Nazi commercial envoy, Hans Ludwig, and try and stop him from stealing American submarine warfare secrets.
Hawkins follows Ludwig to the elite Saratoga racing meeting, where Ludwig is cultivating top American business leaders. There he meets the scion of an ancient and aristocratic New York family, Daisy van Schenck. After persuading Daisy to throw Ludwig out of the mansion he has rented, Hawkins finds himself increasingly attracted to her - and to the possibility of a different life.
When Hawkins discovers a Nazi plot to rig the presidential election, he is forced to choose between duty and the woman he loves.

Mr Dudley tells a fascinating spy story set in 30's. With remarkably constructed period detail, Dudley dishes up an utterly believable story of New York (City and upstate) intrigue.
The narrator, Christopher Lane, does a great job with both men's and women's voices and manages the various accents. He brings Mr Dudley's story to life.
[Full disclosure: I knew Mr. Dudley at one time]
