Summary
Berlin, 1949. Almost four years after the war, the city is still in ruins, caught between political idealism and the harsh realities of Soviet occupation. Espionage, like the black market, is a fact of life. Alex Meier, a young Jewish writer, fled the nazis for America before the war. But the politics of his youth have now put him in the crosshairs of the McCarthy witch-hunts. Faced with deportation and the lost of his family, he makes a desperate bargain with the fledgling CIA : he will earn his way back to America by acting as their agent in his native Berlin. But almost from the start things go fatally wrong
