A deadly new twist to the game of espionage, blackmail, and seduction.
A high speed journey into terror and sudden death for British agent John Gail.
A tense, gripping spy story…dramatic, violent, absorbing!
John Gail’s new assignment focused on a highly respected, silver-haired British diplomat. It began with blackmail, with the help of a sealed camera, a two-way mirror, a vial of aphrodisiac, and a beautiful 15-year old who had a secret arsenal of erotic talents. The mission was planned to block a power play in Paris and prevent Europe from exploding into war. It seemed foolproof. But only a fool would trust a school girl when the fate of nations was at stake.

Follow The Man!
One don’t need a bloodhound to tell you that when you’re on to a good thing you stick to it. 
What’s the infallible recipe?
Experience, mainly. Before becoming a full time writer. Hank Janson packed a lifetime of adventure, romance, and thrills into the few years it took him to hit the top as a Chicago Crime Correspondent. A man with talent and a store house of experience like that never lacks the right kind of authentic inspiration.

British agent John Gail on a nerve-chilling assignment:
Destroy an elite society of sexual deviates plotting absolute world domination. 
An ingeniously macabre plot like nothing you’ve read before!

The Most Exclusive Club on Earth
Getting in is unlikely. It takes money, influence, and superhuman cunning.
Staying in is risky. It means submitting to an incredibly bizarre variety of sadistic sexual appetites
Getting out is suicide. Membership is for life, and attempting to quit means being hunted down and slaughtered like an animal.
Destroying is impossible. It’s made up of the wealthiest and most powerful figures in Britain.
Yet John Gail was expected to accomplish each of those tasks alone. At stake was the life of another agent, and the structure of civilized government.
