Storyline

In 1905 Germany, the British have two operatives planted inside a top secret German shipyard. After one of them is exposed, Reilly is sent in to replace him, but because the surviving agent is perceived as being a weak link, Reilly doesn't reveal himself to him... even though they are boarding at the same house. Reilly diverts himself by romancing his Marxisr landlord's daughter. Written by duke1029@aol.com
