A classic adventure of the duo of pilots in Switzerland during the 1960s, in a tangled web of espionage. Backstabbing, superb air combats and sumptuous snowy landscapes on the agenda…

Zürich, a den of spies! We are in the middle of the 1960s, at the height of the Cold War. And Switzerland – a neutral country – is the perfect place for the West and the East to face off against each other in secret through their respective (double?) agents. It is in this context that the Swiss Confederation wants to modernize its fleet of jet aircraft.

Tanguy and Laverdure, who have come to promote the Dassault Mirage III to the country’s federal authorities, are immediately confronted with a strange atmosphere… As soon as the two pilots land on the Emmen base (canton of Lucerne), strange events begin to unfold: improbable accidents, a murder and even a suicide. Soon, while flying a Swiss plane, Tanguy becomes the target of a sniper…

Whether it is during an evening at the opera, on the country’s ski slopes or over the Alps, Tanguy and Laverdure will have to show great skill to avoid the traps, both in the air, and in an environment they have little control over: that of espionage and counterespionage on a global scale. A female British agent also seems to be involved, but difficult to say what her motives are and for whom she is working. Private interests? The CIA? The MI6? The KGB? Or is she working solo?

This fourth “Classic” album from the “The Pilot who knew too much” series embarks you on an adventure full of deception and intrigue, where distrust is the key to survival at every moment. All with breathtaking aerial scenes, in beautiful high mountain landscapes!
