In May 1942, a Heinkel He 111 bomber crashed in Norfolk, England, leaving behind a mysterious secret. Two and a half years later, Angelika Kazimierz of the Polish resistance, who had been rescued from a Nazi concentration camp, was invited to Seaton Manor to undergo surgery for an injured leg. Sir Richard Seaton, his daughter Diana, her lover U.S. Army captain Billy Boyle, and Piotr “Kaz” Kazimierz, the Polish baron and Billy’s closest friend, were among the guests.

Charlotte Mothersole, another guest, shared the story of her brother Stephen Elliot’s disappearance two years ago and of German soldiers reportedly seen in the area. The mystery deepened when the notorious bomber was found with Elliot in the pilot’s seat. Seaton was suspected by the British military, and David Archer, a local who had witnessed the original crash, was found dead shortly after. Billy Boyle was on hand to investigate the murder puzzle, which was revealed in pieces as Benn skillfully advanced the stories of the characters he had developed in previous novels.
