Against his mother’s wishes, Adam Scott decides to do so and with it comes a whole host of problems that he did not foresee. He is tailed by the KGB, the CIA and his own countrymen as they try to make sense of it all. Within days, his lover is brutally murdered and he’s running for his life in the great cities of Europe.
