A novel of death and deceit, savagery and sabotage, matched by the swift action of an operator whose umbrella is his sword.

John Steed, Emma Peel, facing ruthless criminals dedicated to the destruction of their own country - and unidentified.
Deadline was the first novel featuring Emma Peel and the first of two Avengers novels to be published by Hodder and Stoughton in the UK - the only previous Avengers novel having been Douglas Enefer's The Avengers from Consul Books in 1963, which had featured Steed and Cathy Gale. The second and final book from the company was Dead Duck the following year. Both titles were written by actor Patrick Macnee (John Steed) in tandem with journalist Peter Leslie.

Someone is tampering with speeches reported in the continental editions of British newspapers: antagonising other nations and causing anti-British riots abroad. John Steed and Emma Peel are called in to go undercover at The Courier newspaper in Fleet Street. Their mission: to identify and track down the Brotherhood, a band of neo-fascist ruthless criminals who will stop at nothing - not even murder - to bring down the Government and seize power.
