If you are after something a little different, then Operation Underpants is for you. An easy read - full of action, adventure and humour combined with poignant social commentary.
Forgotten and waiting to die, 87 year of old's, Max and Olivia live in a nursing home in Australia. They met as teenagers on covert operations during WW2. After the war they married and under the guise of a doddering vicar and his wife, continued a life of secrets as cold war spies. After reading a secret message in the newspaper, Max and Olivia are called back into action. They must escape from the nursing home and return to the United Kingdom to retrieve the Janus Machine hidden in the dying days of the war. Although pursued by the police and those determined to stop them, the fate of London and much of the world hangs in the balance – they must succeed.
