In a desperate bid to save his top spy network, Herbie Kruger goes back over the Berlin Wall...

When a high-ranking KGB officer commits suicide, Big Herbie Kruger - first introduced in The Nostradamus Traitor - mounts a perilous operation to uncover the double agent before he or she destroys Kruger's 'Telegraph Boys' in East Berlin. Against orders, Britain's German-born spymaster offers himself to the Soviets.

But while Kruger hunts his quarry - and the KGB close in - he also makes a shattering journey into his own past...
