Engineer and vietnam vet Paul Crane finds himself once again recruited by the CIA, this time to pretend he'll negotiate the sale of classified information on nuclear weapons to Chinese infiltrators. The CIA doesn't want the FBI to know of this domestic operation, which means Paul is practically on his own in this high-stakes and dangerous game. Sequel to RED HEROIN, which Robert A. Heinlein called "a hell of a good yarn... the most realistic counter-espionage story I've read in a long, long time."
