From the Publisher
Unit, is persuaded to undertake one fi nal job. He is sent on assignment to
Sweden following the suspicious death of an English undercover agent.
His task is to help the Stockholm Police, and liaise with the local police
in Jämtland in Mid Sweden.
Th e dead man is one of seven agents planted in the country during the
late 1970s at the whim of the British Prime Minister. Now the Stockholm
Police are asking questions and Reg has been sent on a low key mission
to help gloss over the problem and arrange for the repatriation and
retirement of the rest of the group.
Th e problem is suddenly compounded when yet another of the group also
dies in similar circumstances. Both deaths appear to stem from attacks
by some mythical lake monster similar to that purported to be present in
Loch Ness. Reg and Anna Petersson, the Swedish police advisor, begin
investigating when attempts on their lives suddenly make it plain that
they could be the next victims. But is the killer really a monster or is this
an elaborate attempt to hide the identity of the real murderer?
