The eighth in the November Man Series, the basis for the forthcoming film starring Pierce Brosnan
In the majestic silence of Chartres cathedral, Devereaux - code name
November - receives his assignment: help Czechoslovakia's cultural
liason cross over to the West. A hard enough job, even without the added
complication of an act of God.
For in the humble Chicago parish church, the sacred statue of the Infant
of Prague is found weeping real tears. A visiting Czech child star, transfigured
by the miraculous event declares, on live television, her intent to remain in
America in the name of Christ and freedom.
Only an operative as cynical and seasoned as the November Man can sense
the sinister link between the two events. The miracle has plunged him into
a vast global adventure. And it will take a miracle to get him through it alive.
