Curtis Barron built Midway from a small farming community into a prosperous town.
But Curtis Barron has interests apart from the town – interests that satisfy his craving for money and power, and interests that spread evil and corruption over the countryside.
There is Petrina, Curtis Barron’s daughter, whose love for her father turns to a deadly hatred.
There’s also Greg Raymond – a hero in the eyes of the world, but whose greed and ambition bring disaster to the town of Midway.
There are many other colourful characters too – most of whom choose to close their ears to the ugly rumours – rumours which would tell them that their peaceful little town was actually Midway to Hell.
And, so the scene is set for this story, which concerns Secret Agent Roger Schofield, who thought he could retire from the Service to lead a quiet life in the country. He would always remember his associate agent, but would not regret saying to her – Goodbye, Gwynnevere.
Roger Schofield has been attached to a special branch of the British Secret Service for more than twenty years. Tired of the life, and more than somewhat disillusioned by the nature of the missions he has been called on to carry out, he resigns and takes a job in the Home Office.
Roger is ordered by West to assassinate his erstwhile fellow secret agent David Cunningham, who has been arrested for selling vital information to the Russians and has threatened that, if brought to trial, he will divulge all he knows about the Service and its activities. Reluctantly Roger agrees to carry out this final mission.
