The Dark Tunnel - the Story Of a Homosexual Spy

by Millar, Kenneth

When Dr. Robert Branch's best friend ends up dead he knows it is the work of an underground Nazi group on the campus of the University where he works, and that he could be next. This is the first book by Kenneth Millar, who later wrote under the pseudonym Ross MacDonald to not get confused with his wife Margaret Millar who was achieving her own fame in mysteries. -
