But Britain wants the secrets of the space bomb which is being developed there, and the Director of Britain’s SS(O)S has worked out a plan to get them.
James Dingle and Glyn Jones are briefed for the job. Undercover, they must try to unearth secrets of the Russian development for dropping warheads from a low-orbit vehicle. Posing as tourists, their mission is to find out as much as they can about this development.
But from the moment Dingle boards the plane for Moscow he is uneasy; he feels sure that he is being watched by the K.G.B. Has something gone wrong with the arrangements? Or is there a traitor in SS(O)S?
