Engaging espionage tale, as the Beresfords. In Intelligence in the last war, find they are too old for usefulness in this. Tommy gets a chance to track down the heads of the 5th column in England, and Tuppence, against orders, comes along. They work on the boarders in Mrs. Perenna's Bana Souel in a small coastal town, Tommy runs down N and Tuppence is trapped, but her quick thinking saves her, and England, as the leaders and their fanatical followers are rounded up. Period -- early summer 1940. As good a job as any she has done for years -- better than most.
