Dealing again with the Americans occupying Germany, it concerns Major Robert Lashley, his fight for personal probity and the woman he loves against policy and procedure.

Refusing to believe her dossier of treason, Lashley falls in love with Thémis, refuses to turn her over to the French authorities for trial, defies superior authority, comes to doubt the validity of the trial, but eventually gets his vindication of Thémis. . .—Kirkus Review.
