Game without rules


Mr Calder lived with a golden deerhound named Rasselas in a cottage in Kent. Mr Behrens lives with his aunt and keeps bees. No one would in the least suspect that the pair are in fact agents for the British Joint Services Standing Committee and they are often tasked with jobs that no one else can take on – simply because of the extreme nature of the action needed. They are dangerous – and they are watched.

For two secret agents, there’s no such thing as a quiet life in the countryside…

In a peaceful Kent village, Mr Behrens lives with his aunt at the Old Rectory, where he plays chess and keeps bees. His friend Mr Calder lives nearby with Rasselas, a golden deerhound of unnatural intelligence. No one would suspect that they are in fact working for British Intelligence, carrying out the jobs that are too dangerous for anyone else to handle – whether it’s wiping out traitors, Soviet spies or old Nazis – in these gloriously entertaining stories.
