Flovent, Reykjavik's sole detective, is joined by the young military policeman Thorson, the son of Icelandic emigrants to Canada. Their investigation focuses on a family of German residents, the retired doctor Rudolf Lunden and his estranged son Felix, who is on the run, suspected of being a spy. Flovent and Thorson race to solve the case before US counterintelligence can take it out of their hands, amid rumours of a pending visit by Churchill.
But the plot thickens as evidence emerges of dubious experiments carried out on Icelandic schoolboys in the 1930s, while Thorson becomes increasingly suspicious of the role played by the murdered man's former girlfriend, Vera, and her British soldier lover.

Lots of Concentration Needed!
While the story line was interesting, with lots of twists and turns, there were so many characters, so many story lines, and so much jumping between them all, that listening to this book was a little taxing, and made the story a little less than enjoyable. Maybe reading the actual physical book would be easier, as the reader could flip back in chapters as needed. And the ending was very disappointing. Not one of the author's better works.
