As war breaks out and the Scouts and Guides are volunteered to support the war effort at home, Harriet decides to form her own army of misfits, mounting their own patrols to track down German spies. Soon, she and her army become embroiled in a daring adventure on the hunt for an enemy who is much closer to home than they realise.
