'Truly a classic writer of espionage fiction' - Len Deighton
Jake Malik, an SIS Officer, is sent to West Germany to uncover - not infiltrate - KGB activity there. But he does not know that his bosses have sent him for a very different reason.
His liaison is Heinz Fischer from the German Political Police. Fischer's sister Lisa falls in love with the lonely Englishman, not realising that his mission could destroy the foundations of their lives.
