Martin and Robert gazed dreamily across a widening expanse of water to a grey smudge which an hour before had been easily recognisable as Cherbourg, might well have been mistaken for brothers. Both possessed dark hair, blue eyes flecked with grey, pleasing, irregular features and a physical springiness that even in repose was notable.
Martin Storm’s visit to New York seemed like it was a success. But that was until his car was machine gunned and the police had to smuggle him out of the country…But Martin finds no safety at home, either, and the search begins to find the man who is hunting him down.
He soon discovers that he has become involved with an American underworld boss who is planning to expand his business to Britain. Will he be able to escape the gangster’s clutches, or will he become a victim in his complex game?
Redhead is the second book in the Department Z series, and was originally published in 1933.
