The Ends of the Earth by Robert Goddard (July 2015)

July 1919.  Ex-flying ace James 'Max' Maxted's attempt to uncover the secret behind the death of his father, Sir Henry Maxted, murdered while serving as an adviser with the British delegation to the Paris Peace Conference, has seemingly ended in failure - and his own death.

The trail he had uncovered leads to Japan and a mysterious prisoner held by Sir Henry Maxted's old enemy, Count Tomura.  Unaware of Max's fate, the team he has recruited to finish the job are already in Japan where their paths cross that of former German spymaster, Fritz Lemmer, now rebuilding his spy network in the service of a new, more sinister cause.

In the days and weeks ahead, the quest Max embarked on in Paris will reach its dizzying end at Tomura's castle in the mountains of Honshu - and the full truth of what occurred thirty years before will finally be laid bare.
