An ugly reality becomes painfully clear to Tweed, the high-ranking spymaster of British Intelligence: One of his four European sector chiefs is a traitor. But which, like the Roman god Janus, is the man with two faces?

Impelled by the murder of his own special agent, Tweed sets forth on a desparate search that leads from England to West and East Germany, Denmark and Norway. There is a conspiracy here, of course, but what is its purpose? And how is it related to the rape-strangulation of young women?

Aided by his friend Newman, a journalist, Tweed plays out an unorthadox chase against time and harsh odds in which he is both hunter and hunted. This book has an unrelenting pace--a powerful thrust of action and intrigue that races to a wholly unpredictable conclusion.
