It’s June 1940. War is raging in Europe. France is about to collapse to the Nazis. England is bracing for a devastating German invasion…and the fall of the British empire. In desperation, Winston Churchill sends the kingdom’s wealth in gold bullion and securities to Canada for safekeeping. The first of these top secret shipments, traveling by sea to North America and then by train to Montreal, is worth over $500 million. A group of American soldiers are plotting to steal it… and only one man, a lowly agent for the Bank of England, stands in their way.
A substantially different version of this book was previously published under the title “MacTaggart’s War.”
Jim Hardman is an ex-cop who works as an unlicensed PI, troubleshooter, and bodyguard. He is hired to find the people who ripped off an illegal gambling party before a hitman does. The second novel in the unforgettable series by Ralph Dennis. Performed by Shawn Compton.
In their sixth adventure, Hardman and Hump step into the middle of a bar fight and stumbles into a deadly but lucrative job -- protecting a guy who is next-in-line for a massive inheritance from being murdered by professional assassins.
