France 1919. James Maxted (Max) has spend the first world war as a fighter pilot and is home after being held prisoner in a camp. He plans to set up a flying school - but then life intervenes when his father is found dead under dubious circumstances. Together with his brother he goes to Paris to investigate.
The way the story comes together and we learn about connections as Max gets pulled into the world of diplomacy and spying is very well done. Great characters. Looking forward to the next installment.
