Germany: July 1945. From poverty-stricken Madrid, intelligence agent Peter Cotton is sent to the British Zone of Occupation, first to Hamburg, then to Luneberg, headquarters of the Second Army.

The troops, told to be ‘conquerors, not oppressors’, have discovered that in Germany anyway, they are rich and can get richer. The black market is blatant and comes in many shades and temptations – but just how high up the chain of command does it go? And what can Cotton really do about it?
