For 10 yrs. U.S. and Soviet Mutual Inspection Teams roamed one another's countries searching for breaches of the Arms Agreements. They never found one. Then American Intelligence learned that the Soviets were ready to launch a deadly chemical weapon against the U.S., and Admiral Ricardo Handy had to locate it--and neutralize it. He sent in his best agents, and when they failed, he had no choice but to play his hole card: Keefe McCann, a con man in jail for life. Springing McCann from prison and sending him to Moscow was easy. And convincing the Soviet scientists to part w/the information should be no problem for an expert con man. But staying ahead of the KGB & getting the information back to Handy would be the trick iest con McCann had ever pulled.& the survival of the U.S. depended on it!
