Now living under the pseudonym, "David" was a member of an elite corps of spies trained during the coldest days of the Cold War. For almost a decade he has been out of the game, living quietly and working as a sculptor. In this atmospheric 1997 standalone novel by the creator of the Lew Griffin series, a phone call in the middle of the night awakens him; the only other survivor from that his corps has gone rogue, and David is tasked with stopping him. What ensues is an existential cat-and-mouse game played out in the diners and motels across the American landscape.
"[There] is a finely poetic quality to every understated scene."—Kirkus Reviews (London)
