1946- Whilst working for MI5 Foyle investigates the murder of a professor, William Knowles, who had been a translator at the Nuremberg war trials. In his pocket is the address of American oil tycoon Clayton Del Mar but Del Mar denies knowing the dead man. Foyle learns not only that Del Mar was recently visited by a high ranking Russian but that Knowles had photographs of German businessmen anxious to trade with Russia for its oil. He travels to Nuremberg but finds another corpse, a former Nazi factory owner who had dealings with Knowles. Meanwhile Sam goes undercover as companion to Del Mar's dying father, a Nazi sympathizer, but puts herself in danger as Foyle discovers evidence of shady dealings by Del Mar dating from the middle of the war.
