A circle of spies travels by Cadillac from Switzerland to the Sudan in this critically acclaimed novel: “arguably the finest modern American spy story” (The New York Times).

Paul Christopher is cool, urbane, clear-sighted—a perfect American agent in deep cover in the twilight world of international intrigue. But now even he does not know which side is good or bad in a maze of double- and triplecross.

When a small group of international agents embarks on a road trip from Switzerland to the Sudan, Christopher is among them. Along for the ride are a comical Polish exile, a beautiful Hungarian seductress, and a North African prince with an appetite for women and a lust for power. Christopher only knows that he has to find whose finger is on the trigger of a terrorist threat that could turn the Cold War uncomfortably hot—and God help everyone if he makes a mistake.

Praise for this book

"It is ages since I enjoyed anything as much . This is the most intelligent and enthralling piece of work I have read for a very long time. The level of reality it achieves is high indeed; it is superbly constructed, wholly convincing, and displays insights that are distinctly refreshing. A new and very welcome talent." - Eric Ambler
