What do you do when your family business is threatened? The New York ‘muscle’ men can see rich pickings and they want some. Your father tells them to go take a running jump. What would you expect to happen next? Yup. He’s broken, finished. But they hadn’t reckoned with a young Paul Schumann. He finds them, takes them out. Much to the approval of the more civilised among New York’s villainous underbelly. Suddenly, he discovers he’s carved out a career for himself.

Best Mystery -  Garden of Beasts 2

A tip-off about the whereabouts of his latest target turns out to be a set-up. Paul Schumann is caught cold. Luckily it’s only someone who wants to make use of his very dependable and specialised services. Naval Intelligence have a plan. Well you have to do something if you want to stop Germany re-arming. Hitler is in the ascendance and one man, Reinhard Ernst, is driving the push toward military supremacy. He has to be killed.

It could be a severe test of Paul Schumann’s mettle, of whether his enemy is a match for him, and for all the plans.
