In the first novel in this gripping historical series, James “Max” Maxted, the daredevil Royal Flying Corps veteran, arrived in Paris during the 1919 peace conference to investigate the death of his diplomat father. But it didn’t take long for him to land a new role: double agent. Now, In THE CORNERS OF THE GLOBE, Max is sent on his first mission for legendary German spy Fritz Lemmer, the very man who claims responsibility for the murder of Max’s father. Further complications arise when a tourist recognizes Max and threatens to blow his cover. Meanwhile, Max’s trusty sidekick Sam Twentyman has been promoted to chief mechanic for the British diplomatic fleet of cars. Sam is content with his new set-up, until he receives warning that a nefarious element in the Japanese delegation is out to kill Lemmer --- and they have reason to believe that Sam might be a link in the chain connected back to him.
