Summary
One of the CIA's top international operatives is suddenly relegated to a desk job in an agency power play. Unwilling to go quietly, and with the aid of a chic Viennese widow, he puts himself back in the game by writing a memoir exposing the innermost secrets of every major intelligence agency in the world. The CIA now wants him dead, but he refuses to cooperate--because he's having to much fun!
