William Power mystery
Summary Failed Shakepsearean actor and would-be private investigator Will Power's unique detective skills are, one again, in demand. The Japanese army is rampaging through the islands of the South Pacific and Australia's front line of defence is a top-secret, crack and division of men embedded deep in the tropical wilderness of northern Australia. But something is threatening their vital, covert mission: one of this elite corps is a murderer, preying on his comrades, one by one. With a case too senstive to be trusted to the police, military intelligence turn to the man who singular combination of ablities make him capable of infiltrating the clandestine military operation and rooting out the killer. William Power goes into deep cover, posing as a cheap, vaudeville entertainer on tour to relieve the troops. Enlisting hte help of his brother, whose latent skills for female impersintation rise to the occasion, Will soon finds himself in the far-northern outback trying to rasie the morale of a group of desperate young soldiers lying in wait for the arrival of Tojo's army - knowing all the while that one fo them is the killer
