The Gregory Sallust series is commonly referred to as a forerunner to Ian Fleming’s James Bond. 

In Contraband, British Intelligence agent, Sallust enjoys a holiday in France before starting a new mission, where he is intrigued by a beautiful woman in a casino. Captivated by the elusive Sabine, he follows her to a rendezvous with a mystery airman at midnight. The next morning, Sallust finds himself under attack and, although he escapes danger, Sabine disappears. Returning to England, Sallust discovers a ring of smugglers orchestrating the dispatch of heavy bombers with contraband goods. When he discovers that an inspector from Scotland Yard is also on the case, and that Sabine may be involved, his loyalties are torn.

In The Scarlet Imposter Gregory Sallust, at the height of the Nazi regime, is tasked with contacting an anti-Nazi organisation in Germany who are preparing to overthrow Hitler and sue for peace. In a series of clever disguises, Sallust masquerades his way through challenge after challenge, surrounded by some of the most vicious and determined Nazis of the Third Reich.

In Faked Passports, Gregory Sallust’s escape plane is shot down, he is stranded and wanted in Nazi Germany.The first port of call for the brazen Sallust is to rescue the newly captured Erika von Epp, certain to be in the hands of Nazi torturers, by talking his way into the private sanctum of Hermann Goering. In this robust and hair-raising tale of adventure, Sallust takes on a number of disguises to get himself into, and out of, nail-bitingly dangerous situations in order to triumph and hopefully to win the heart of von Epp.
