He doesn't discover till he's assigned to that very same distinct unit, referred to as TRR-2, in occupied Germany. Fattorini is still passionate about the incident, attempting to ferret out the truthfrom his "mad" colonel, a number of fellow majors (his personal promoting is a secret to him) and the boyish, loquacious Capt. Audley. in basic terms after an exercize in lifting a German DP scientist, within which the British double-cross the americans, does Fattorini become aware of what's rather happening: a British try to co-opt high-level German scientists from less than the noses of the Russians and discover a Russian operative of their midst. There are tricks of Evelyn Waugh's wartime trilogy and yes trends towards Anthony Powell's obliqueness in his A Dance to the song of Time sequence. yet obliqueness the following turns into annoyingly talky, and the tone of anguished cynicism turns out stagey. this isn't Price's top attempt.
