Tom Pearson grows up in an impoverished, north-eastern English city. A socialist by virtue of his

upbringing and an unabashed supporter of the Russian communist party. While at University,

studying physics, he is seduced by a female lecturer and recruited as a Russian sleeper agent.

He spies for the NKGB providing classified British research into radar and other advanced

technologies during the Second World War, before he is turned by MI5. With his help, the agency

discover and prosecute a Russian network of scientists in Britain who had infiltrated its wartime

research departments. The reaction of the Russians to his betrayal is ferocious and the NKGB set out

to eliminate him...

After one failed attempt and suspicious of a possible Russian mole in MI5, Tom disappears into postwar

Britain in game of cat and mouse that Tom simply cannot afford to lose...
