A fast-moving and well-written plot with plenty of suspense. A shorter story, but still a worthy John Purkiss thriller.

I have read full length John Purkiss (aka ‘The Ratcatcher’) stories and enjoyed them all.
This is a shorter story where Purkiss is taking a bit of relaxation in Malta, but comes across Oleksander Motruk, a gun runner who he knows from his past exploits.
Purkiss tries to alert British Intelligence to his presence, but they don’t seem surprised or concerned.
So he decides to investigate further for himself and is drawn in to a conspiracy and an undercover intelligence operation, which also involves Sicilian mobsters.
