SYNOPSIS
THE NOONDAY DEVIL By URSULA CURTISS
ANDREW SENTRY, drinking in a bar, gets into conversation with an unknown man, who reveals to him casually that Andrew's brother Nick, reported as killed while trying to escape from a Japanese prison-camp, was in fact framed by one of his own comrades. Behind the rifles of the Japanese guards stalked the devil that works at noonday, cold-blooded, premeditated murder. Who—and why? 'There's a guy that calls himself Sands . . .' said the man in the bar, 'but he doesn't turn round very quickly when you call him.1
