Jack Teller left the Company after the Bay of Pigs fiasco, hoping to live a quiet life on a remote beach in south Florida. But it's not turning out that way. Just days before President John F. Kennedy is scheduled to deliver his historic speech at the Berlin Wall, a mysterious message is sent to the Berlin station of the CIA from a Colonel in the East German Stasi. He claims to have important information, but he will disclose it to only one man: Jack.

The intelligence provided by this Stasi official, if true, exposes a treacherous plot originating from the highest levels of the U.S. government. Jack's handlers, including his former mentor Sam Clay, believe it's a communist setup, and Jack is playing the part of the expendable pawn. But after a face-to-face meeting with his informer, Jack isn't so sure and plunges into a risky search for the truth. After receiving threats from higher-ups in the CIA, he soon finds himself alone.
