Charles Maxwell has survived 38 yrs. as a crack CIA agent. He's killed before to save himself. Now he faces a killer he can't outwit-cancer. Knowing he has only 6 mnonths to live Maxwell finances a "good death" by selling $100,000 worth of 2nd rate secrets to the Russians. Eluding capture by the CIA, he disappears to a secluded Swiss chalet to spend his remaining days in the shadow of the Matterhorn.

By chance, however, brilliant Soviet dissident Constantin Vronsky is hiding in the chalet next to Maxwell's. The KGB is desperate to prevent his defection. And so is the CIA. Once again embbroiled in the deadly spy's game of cross and double cross, Maxewell faces his final dilemma.
