His capture is crucial to the success of the forthcoming D-Day invasion of France. They then discover a bunch of maverick Allied servicemen are stranded on Guernsey so Hawkwind has no choice but recruit them.
When told they only have 24 hours before the elite officer leaves Guernsey, the Hawkwind heroes are forced into a critical race against the clock as they try to get to the closely guarded VIP.
But after numerous failed attempts, they finally meet up in a suicidal confrontation.Then a new revelation changes everything.
Beaches of Blood
Deep undercover in Nazi-occupied Normandy sabotaging coastal defences in advance of the imminent D-Day invasion, our team of misfit heroes receives an urgent coded message.
A ruthless American femme fatale has stolen details of the forthcoming invasion and is in France.
They have only five days before the 6th of June to evade enemy troops and collaborators and capture their quarry before she delivers the plans to the German High Command.
The race is on to prevent the world’s greatest wartime operation from becoming wartime’s greatest disaster!
After the war come the Nuremberg Trials. And along with them the Cold War.
The Hawkwind heroes are linked together in a tangled weave of intrigue and adventure as they seek escaping Nazi criminals in the divided city of Berlin. And where they encounter a new enemy: the fanatical spies of the Soviet Union.
While seeking and capturing minor officers they are instructed to find a top Nazi before he flees to South America. But the Soviets want him, thus creating a running battle with our heroes – where death and destruction follows in their footsteps.
The Missing Mr Moonstone
The husband of an over sensitive Mrs. Moonstone is missing. And later, her jewellery. And finally, her children’s beautiful governess.
An obvious case of marital deception and down right robbery. All it needs is a little bit of snooping for the two lady detectives, and all will be well.
However, they soon discover nothing is so simple in the world of private detectives, especially female ones in a Victorian male-dominated society.
So with genuine compassion for those in need, a bloody-minded dedication to duty, they encounter murder and deception and possibly a budding romance before they eventually triumph.
Jack the Nipper
Women are being assaulted in broad daylight and nothing is being done to catch the attacker. Miss Prim, their next door neighbour, at 221a Baker Street, is the latest and the Detective Ladies take up her case.
They go into the streets to track down the vile fingered fiend, only to encounter Establishment arrogance and suppression of the truth by the newspapers and the police.
After arrests, kidnapping and murder attempts, the two stalwart ladies expose the Nipper, only to find their investigations have not yet come to an end.
Death Holds a Seance

But there is nothing there and they believe someone at the meeting beat them to it. But the Detective Ladies are convinced Zarkofski is a fraud and seek to expose her.
At another séance she predicts the death of a Mr Knowles and the ladies try to protect him, but he dies and the medium is arrested for murder by autosuggestion.
They then discover there was a lost Indian jewel in the wall, proving Zarkofski is genuine after all. Now they have to find the jewel and the thief to save her from the gallows. And time is running out.
