It begins in Sweden. A low-level defection by a Russian sailor in Stockholm coincides with the theft of critical tapes at a high-level Soviet-American conference in Malmo. At stake is a sophisticated computer virus potentially more lethal that any biological plague in history. From Paris to Copenhagen to Washington to the Vatican, two adversaries once more find themselves on opposite sides: Henry McGee, the traitorous, seemingly indestructible double agent, and Devereaux, code name November, waging his personal, deadly war for--and against--both the CIA and the KGB.
An American translator carrying a tape of classified information is pursued by both KGB and CIA agents and protected by the spy Devereaux. ``Jarred only by an occasional turgid phrase, this espionage thriller is the November Man's most memorable appearance to date,'' commented PW.
