Having met Blair at a dinner party, Dante trusts him to publish the manuscript, which contains information that could alter the balance of world power. But before the manuscript reaches Blair it is intercepted by the West's spy-masters, who then send Blair to Russia to gain more information on the mysterious manuscript.
