The Perils and the Prize

Jim Crossley

World War II is raging. Germany and Britain, bitter enemies, are nevertheless united by ancient family ties. Two young cousins, one a highly motivated professional pilot, the other a rather effete young artist, are serving in opposing air forces but in love with the same girl, Angela. Disenchanted with the Nazi regime, Hans, the German, finds himself under a deadly threat from which only Angela can save him. Meanwhile his cousin William, now a reluctant bomber pilot, has to save his crew from the clutches of the Gestapo. The end of the war throws the two men together when they are confronted by a yet more fearsome hidden danger.
