A power-hungry right-wing Russian politician aided by a hardcore ex-KGB Officer, attempts to come to takeover the Russian government, through his popularity, to establish his dictatorship. British and American covert agencies uncover the plot and unofficially recruit a retired SIS chief and an ex-CIA agent to stop the Russian and his ruthless lieutenant. The first part of the book builds up the character of the protagonist, the CIA Agent Jason Monk and how he humanely recruits Russian spies for the CIA and their ultimate destruction by the KGB because of the American spy Aldrich Ames who gave away the most significant American agents to the KGB for money.
The second part describes the accidental discovery of the plot by the British and American covert agencies and how they recruit a retired SIS chief, a Cold War veteran, to take care of the issue.
