Operation Gunfleet - The final story in the Valentine Series
Post-war London, a year after the German surrender. Three deserters from the 6813th US Army detachment have stolen Comms Equipment from Bletchley Park. They are in hiding awaiting their next move.
This vital equipment intercepted and deciphered Nazi Enigma transmissions and provided Allied Commanders with crucial intelligence. It's now ready to be sold to the highest bidder. Few people recognised that these machines would form the basis of computer technology in the future; invaluable in the right hands.
Professor Brimblecombe, head of British Intelligence, reunites Alistair and Freddie Valentine and his team of spies for one final mission. Their objectives: catch the deserters, recover the stolen Comms Equipment, and identify the traitor at the White House.
There is one clue. Jessica Hope, a cryptanalyst from Codes and Cyphers has evidence: a leaked US Pentagon Stores Requisition Memo.
But can it possibly be genuine?
Once again Joselyn Foster, the Massachusetts-born spy from Valentines Cup and Crimson Wing excels.
Praise for the Author (Regarding 'One Single Ticket' by Robert Wallace):
"A detective story told at a breathless pace, with a Richard Hannay type hero straight out of a John Buchan thriller, and it goes with a swing", Professor Angus Buchanan, author of 'Brunel: The Life and Times of Isambard Kingdom Brunel'
"The plot is so interesting, and the setting so well done; a delight to get a scenic picture of this special event in history." Dr. Gabrielle Obrist, Museum of Modern Art, Zȕrich
