Kit Fournier is ostensibly a senior diplomat at the US embassy in Grosvenor Square who is also CIA Chief of Station. With the arms race looming large Kit goes undercover to meet with his KGB counterpart to pass on secret information about British spies. In a world where truth means deception and love means honey trap, sexual blackmail and personal betrayal are essential skills.
