They soon realize that they are in possession of materials that were hidden more than 60 years earlier by a notorious deep cover agent for the Soviet Union. And buried with the materials were clues to a great last secret of the Cold War-the identity of the most effective spy in the history of espionage.
Long a mere footnote in history, the story of this man's treachery reaches the pinnacles of power and geopolitics. It's a story that begins just before the Second World War breaks out and reaches the depths of the decades-long stand off that followed.
The trail leads to a picturesque town in Vermont, the streets of New York City, the corridors of power in Washington, DC-but most importantly, Oxford, England, where Davis realizes that the beautiful city of spires on the Thames was once also a city of spies.
The spies of Oxford may never have reached the level of public notoriety as those from that other British stronghold of academia-Cambridge-but clearly the story had never been completely known-or told. And it was a very dangerous mine of detail in which to dig, a fact borne out by a couple of suspicious deaths left in the wake of Templeton Davis's travels.
Davis would discover that at the moment when the world came closest to unparalleled disaster, secrets were being betrayed at the highest levels. He would also come to understand that what he had learned connected to a time of great sorrow for mankind.
At a crucial moment, Templeton Davis quickly develops a bond borne of necessity with a beautiful young woman from Russia-someone with her own secrets. And when what she knows is combined with what the famous broadcaster has learned, the two unlikely heroes find themselves in grave danger, yet poised to rock the world.
