Len Deighton's tale of violence, spy networks, power politics, science, technology, and counterintelligence starts in the wastelands of the Sahara and moves quickly to the streets of Manhattan, to Virginia, Washington, DC., and Florida.
Professor Andrei Bekuv, a leading Russian scientist and UFO aficionado, is defecting to a university chair at New York University with the assistance of the CIA Colonel Mickey Mann and Deighton's familiar hero, our bespectacled Englishman.
But the defection is not what it seems. The 1924 Soceity, once Beduv's professional stations, is far from defunct. Nor is the KGB inactive.
