David, as he’s currently known, was a member of an elite
corps of spies trained during the coldest days of the Cold War. But those days
are long gone, and for almost a decade he has been out of the rat race and
working as a sculptor. Then a phone call in the middle of the night awakens
him: the only other survivor from that elite corps has gone rogue—and they need
David to stop him. What ensues is an existential cat-and-mouse game played out
across the great board that is the American landscape and through the diners and
motels that dot the terrain like green plastic houses on a Monopoly board.
In this haunting and visceral yarn, James Sallis
investigates the cynical, violent, sophisticated world of modern espionage with
authority and originality.
