Washington, DC, 1945. Lieutenant Ellis Voigt of the Office of Naval Intelligence is desperate to keep the secrets that threaten his life. The FBI suspects that he is the communist who murdered a Naval officer in Washington. The Soviets believe he’s holding back information from their contacts. When Voigt is sent to New Mexico on a secret mission, he is tailed by both the FBI and the Russians. Voigt is forced to face the dilemma he’d been trying to avoid: he can stop the Soviets from getting the bomb or he can save himself --- but he might not be able to do both.

Victory in World War II looms, but a new fear transfixes Washington, DC: fear of communist spies and the atomic secrets they covet. When the corpse of a Navy Intelligence officer is found on a cobblestone back alley, Lt. Voigt is called in to investigate. It’s his first murder, but in the plot that he quickly begins unraveling, it won’t be his last. Pursuing crosses and double-crosses, Voigt goes undercover, and the fragments he discovers suggest something far larger than the usual spy v. spy shenanigans. Soon enough he’s in a race to identify the killer, keep the bomb away from the Russians --- and keep ahead of his own secrets.
