“Pinched between Nazis in Italy and in North Africa, Malta -- a speck of a British Colony -- is taking a nightly pounding. The function of the 'information' officer is to keep up the morale of the troops and the local populace. But how can he when there is a murderer on the loose who might also be a spy? If that not enough, he is in love with two married women, one Maltese and one British--a delicate balancing act in such a hermetic environment.”
