In the lead-up to World War II, Ashe Lincoln, a junior barrister, had enlisted in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. On the outbreak of war, he was determined to serve at sea, but a mysterious midnight summons sent him hurrying from his ship to the Admiralty in London and a top-secret conference presided over by Winston Churchill.
Ashe Lincoln soon found himself pitting his wits against brilliantly skillful German scientists and technicians who were secretly planning the demise of Britain's seapower and ultimate surrender. Lincoln became a key figure in a small group in the Admiralty whose exploits have been almost forgotten. He found himself in extraordinary situations and his story is a remarkable blend of deductive enterprise and courage.
