The girl in the photograph has been missing for five years. Neither her body nor the secret documents she was carrying have ever been found. Now, post-war England's economic recovery depends on finding her and getting the papers back.

They don't know yet about a mysterious and ruthless man called Mr. Brown, or the beautiful sinister older woman who knows all about Jane Finn ... and therefore must die.
