THE WAYS OF THE WORLD
Paris, 1919
With the fate of the world's nations hanging in the balance, a secret affair ends with the death of a senior British diplomat.
As the authorities try to pass it off as a bizarre accident, ex-RFC flying ace, James 'Max' Maxted is convinced otherwise and throws himself headfirst into the dark heart of a seemingly impenetrable mystery - hellbent on uncovering the truth.
With friends indistinguishable from foes, the only way is to keep pushing . . . until you can see who's pushing back!

THE CORNERS OF THE GLOBE
Spring, 1919
Max Maxted has left Paris after avenging the murder of his father, Sir Henry Maxted, convinced the only man who knows about the mysterious events leading up to his death is elusive German spymaster, Fritz Lemmer.
To find out more, he turns double agent and is despatched by Lemmer to the Orkney Isles to gain possession of a document secreted aboard one of the German battleships interned in Scapa Flow. But the information the document contains is so explosive Max is forced to break cover and embark on a desperate and dangerous race south.
Max can trust no-one and the stakes could not be higher. It is life and death for all concerned.

THE ENDS OF THE EARTH
July, 1919
Max Maxted's attempt to uncover the secret behind the death of his father has seemingly ended in failure - and his own death.
Unaware of Max's fate, the team continue to pursue their only lead, travelling to Japan in search of a mysterious prisoner held by Sir Henry's old enemy, Count Tomura. Once there, they encounter former German spymaster, Fritz Lemmer, now rebuilding his spy network in the service of a new, more sinister cause.
The quest Max embarked on in Paris will reach its dizzying end at Tomura's castle in the mountains of Honshu - and the full truth of what occurred thirty years before will finally be laid bare . . .
