Abstract:

In the opening months of postwar Germany, buildings lie in rubble and lives are contorted and broken by war's aftermath. CBS correspondent Jake Geismar is in Berlin to cover the Potsdam conference, but also to search for his wartime mistress, Lena. Before he can find Lena, he comes across the dead body of an American soldier on the grounds of the conference. Nobody wants to investigate it further, which makes Jake scent a story. But before he is through, he finds that Lena is herself connected to the mystery; the Americans and Russians are each looking for Lena's mathematician husband, Emil, who holds the secrets to the Nazi missile program.
