About this title
Luke Pagan is stationed in Portsmouth to keep an eye on Zeppelin flights. He discovers a British Naval officer doing exactly the same. Seemingly, there is a German spy ring operating with a view to directing the Zeppelins so they can keep an eye on the British fleet, although at this time its identity is unknown. Moreover, at the start of World War I, two ships are blown up and the head of counterintelligence orders Luke to carry out surveillance on the suspected British Officer. This in turn leads to the uncovering of an Irish terrorist plot bent on throwing off British rule by any means possible. The Irish have infiltrated the dockyard. It is clear there is an international conspiracy at work which turns out to be run by a German: Krieger. Luke finds himself in a race against time to identify all of the espionage and terrorist activities – or risk Britain losing the war.Review:
Michael Gilbert, voted a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America and his native Britain, has written fine books about crime and espionage set in all periods of the 20th century. Into Battle is a wonderfully rich and exciting story which begins just before World War I, as London policeman Luke Pagan joins a brand new intelligence agency and goes into battle against a much better organized and funded legion of German spies. More vintage Gilbert in paperback include The Crack in the Teacup, Ring of Terror, and Roller-Coaster.
