Inexplicably, Rupe has stopped sending the money that his dysfunctional siblings depend on. Reluctantly, Lance goes to London to learn what he can, only to find that his friend has vanished. His employers, a shipping company, believe he is guilty of a major fraud. A Japanese businessman called Hashimoto claims he has stolen a document of life and death importance. And Townley, an American private detective who has been trying to trace Rupert  has been warned off by unnamed but immensely powerful interests.

  • The future, where genetic science is King. All embryos are tampered with, their genes examined and - where necessary - cut. Man's ultimate goal has been achieved - immortality, since interference in genes had produced humans beings whose tissues were at an optimum and who could technically live forever. These immortals, the Optimen, rule mankind from Central Headquarters, monitoring every subversive action and destroying it immediately. Despite their optimum bodies, the do have enemies - it could be the Cyborgs, long considered destroyed; it could be the Parents Underground, striking back for the family and natural birth...or it could be Death itself. Cover art by Ian Miller.
  • A motorway is proposed through Cleene Gorge, and everyone's got an opinion about it. At one end of Cleene Gorge is Handyman Hall; the home of  Sir Giles and Lady Maud Lynchwood. Sir Giles is secretly in favour of ensuring that the motorway passes through the Cleene Gorge   as he'll be paid compensation for the destruction of Handyman Hall, which is under a  covenant preventing its sale.  Lady Maud is just as fierce in opposing the motorway and expects George to support her. Enter Maud's gardener, Blott, a former German P.O.W. He's strongly patriotic towards his new home nation and home and fiercely devoted to Maud.  With his military training, and some leftovers of the war secretly buried on the estate, Blott begins a wildly inept and covert campaign to undermine the construction of the motorway and Sir Giles' skullduggery.  Vintage Sharpe humour. Cover shows David Suchet as Blott  in the BBC TV series.  
  • Lloyd Gruver and Joe Kelly are poles apart.  One is an American air force ace, son of a four star general, the other a tough nineteen year old orphan from the Chicago slums.  Both are far from home, based in Japan during the Korean War and both airmen fall under the spell of that country and its women. The fates of two very different men are inextricably linked when they are moved to challenge the prejudices of their respective caste.
