When I say Ted Allbeury knows where the bodies are buried I mean it literally' - Len Deighton
Operation MKUltra. The CIA's most secret project. Involving mind-control under the influence of drugs and hypnosis, it uses unwitting individuals for intelligence gathering and counter-espionage.
The illicit experiments carried out under MKUltra can have terrifying - sometimes tragic - human consequences.
It is Senator Joe Maguire's task to monitor the goings-on of MKUltra and to pick up the pieces when things go wrong. A fundamentally decent man, Maguire is plagued with doubts about what he is doing. Just how far should one go to protect democracy against those who whould destroy it?
