He changes identity and by mistake forces his way into a far bigger undercover operation where he has no business being. His case officer in London orders his execution. And this is only the beginning. In no time he is caught up in a devious and complex maze of events in which nothing is quite what it seems to be and no one's allegiance is sure.

Four Americans, a 20-year-old social outcast, a breezily iconoclastic Army officer, a ruthless US senator, and a guilt-ridden heiress, are inexorably drawn together in their struggles to deal with America's chaotic involvement in World War I. Their interwoven destinies lead from poverty-stricken slums through the opulence of 1917-1918 Washington, London, and Paris, and, climactically, into the Western Front's vicious aerial combat, which establishes the matrix for all air warfare to come.

It's 1945, and Stalin's army stands poised to conquer Europe. The only way to stop him is for Truman to bluff him down. To make the bluff work, C.G. Brandt, America's ultra-professional but very human spymaster, is forced to risk everything on Alex Lukas, an under-trained but bilingual secret agent. Lukas must escort a Soviet defector who will parachute into Bavaria with crucial information. But the defector's plane crashes; there is a gorgeous Communist spy in the drop area; and Lukas can't believe the amount of well-armed interest in his movements. Against all odds, Lukas manages to get out with his skin intact. Then he's given new orders: to proceed to Los Alamos, New Mexico, pick up a crate, and deliver it to the Moscow embassy. In the crate is the key to the great bluff--the biggest card in Harry Truman's hand as he faces off with Joseph Stalin
