With an ability to survive in the merciless desert that puts other well-known agents into the shade, Steel doesn't worry if there is nowhere to run and hide. But there is always a price to be paid.

Jock Steel is a young British army officer who knows more than most about his Nazi opponents. He is also passionately in love with Madeleine McLean. Determined to bring his new form of warfare behind enemy lines, Steel is persuaded to serve Britain as a spy in order to safeguard MI6 secrets in the fight against Rommel in North Africa.

As Madeleine leaves Oxford to work in MI5 to get closer to Steel, she uncovers dark secrets at the heart of British Intelligence. Steel abandons Madeleine to fend for herself while he tracks traitors behind enemy lines. Will his revolutionary ideas for a new kind of secret war outwit enemies at home and abroad?

Now that they have been torn apart, can their love survive?
