Of Soviet Russia designed to ensnare the inventor of a wonder motor-car, and transport him from England to Russia to work for'the proletariat'. The British Intelligence Department, in conjunction with Scotland Yard, take up the matter, and it becomes a battle of wits between the two Secret Services.
There are exciting times and the impertinent daring of the Russian agents is nearly successful. When the car is raced at Brooklands and proves its wonderful powers, vigilance is increased on both sides, and the story becomes profoundly exciting. But it is when the cars and their racing teams, with the inventor, are on the way to take part in the great Targa Florio race in Sicily that the thrilling incidents come thick and fast, culminating in an impressive description of the great road race, and its tragic incidents. Readers of Earl Cottingham's previous novel All Out will renew acquaintance with several of its leading characters in this story.
