It started as a simple spy hunt. It became a desperate battle to save the west. For forty years Western intelligence agents have known a terrible secret: the Russians have a mole code-named Talbot inside the CIA. At first Talbot is suspected of killing European agents. Then a street-smart ex-cop uncovers a storm of espionage and murder on the streets of New York, while in a Long Island suburb a civic demonstration against the Russian mission masks a desperate duel of nerves and wits.
