The setting is Bonn during the late '60s when it was the 'temporary' capital of West Germany. The cold war is in deep freeze and the second world war is fresh in everyone's memory...although many are doing their best to forget.

A Nazi who has laundered his past with the best sparkly clean whitener is gaining public support. And, the British Embassy has just lost a junior diplomat and 50 top secret files.

The Foreign Office sends in an investigator. He quickly discovers that what should make sense in a simple case of a spying, just doesn't make sense this time.

A really good spy no
