Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
But there's already an angel of mercy working with the wounded at Scutari. A first-rate fellow who's turned up out of the blue. Goes by the name of Schofield; Thomas Hector Schofield...
With the Seventh Doctor and Ace lost in the siege of Sevastopol, Hex has rediscovered his calling. But there's cannon to the left of him, cannon to the right of him — and a deranged spycatcher-in-chief on his case.
