'Orders From Berlin' - September 1940.
London is under attack and a mole burrowed deep inside MI6 has orders from Berlin to assassinate Winston Churchill. Hitler believes that with Churchill out of the way England will make peace. Only Detective Trave and the daughter of a man murdered by the mole are in a position to foil the plot, but time is running out and the odds are stacked against them.
