The Windsor File
The Windsors‘ last secrets revealed
The year is 1939. The young Scotsman Ajax McDoggle has no sooner left Oxford College when he gets the opportunity to become valet to Edward VIII. The English king had abdicated the throne and was enjoying life on the continent with his bourgeois wife. Ajax can hardly believe his luck. Not only does a well-paid job lie in store for him, but also fabulous parties in Paris and Madrid and sailing trips on the Côte d'Azur. But then the British secret service approaches him and demands that he spy on Edward. The ex-monarch is suspected of trying to ally himself with Adolf Hitler. Ajax reluctantly agrees to supply intelligence for the secret service's socalled Windsor file. At first, the accusations against Edward and his wife, Wallis, turn out to be unfounded. But then agents of the German Abwehr show up at the royal villa near Lisbon, and suddenly everything seems possible. While German and English agents chase Ajax and Edward through Nice, Madrid, and Rome, Ajax tries to find out what the ex-king's intentions really are.
