Parallel Lines Sometimes Meet

Two English scientists, the Brooks, disappear from a beach. Pursuing them to the West Indies, Drake finds a disputed dead man, hears a tale of zombie mineworkers, and meets Russian agent Nicola Tarasova (Moira Redmond). Both spies find themselves following the trail of Dessiles, a Russian atomic scientist wooed by an African government. Dessile’s mine is the site of a narrow escape for Drake, along with temporary ally Tarasova and the missing Brooks couple.
