They met before. Their encounter nearly cost Devereaux--code name November--his life. Now, amid a perilously uncertain global thaw, they meet again: America's November Man, an agent without faith, and a defunct East Germany's Double Eagle, an agent without a country.
For Double Eagle, the confrontation is the means to a totalitarian countercoup inside a reunified Germany. For November, it is the only way to halt the devastating blackmail of Rita Macklin, his one love.
Once more, the two long-standing adversaries--and the powers behind them--will try to use each other. And this time, the spy called Double Eagle is determined that the November Man won't survive.
