Ex-military intelligence officers hope to profit from keeping one of the greatest secrets of WW2. The final piece of information becomes available on the sudden death of a conscientious RAF officer.
 
The navigator bequeaths a diary to his son. It describes a secret held close to his heart for decades. The mystery of his fathers past is added to when colleagues describe his heroic actions. At the funeral the son meets an attractive family member who urges him to work with her to unravel the riddle.
 
The secret is out. Carefully laid plans are in jeopardy. Events lead to a battle between wealthy men and the inheritors of the hero's diary. The countryside and waterways of Scotland become the setting for a brutal struggle. It becomes a matter of life or death.
