It's 1961 and the white heat of the Space Race is making the Cold War even colder
Operative Richard Knox has been hung out to dry by someone at MI5. He's a man with secrets, and not just because he's a secret service officer. Meanwhile, in a closed city outside Leningrad, brilliant physicist Valeria Koskinen discovers the secret to sending messages through space o not just via the clumsy means of the US Corona satellite dropping a payload capsule. But following an accident Valeria must flee. Soon, she finds herself in the sights of not one but two sets of intelligence services, looking to harness her own intelligence.
With Britain's latest surveillance breakthrough stolen, and its top spy trapped in a mysterious coma, Knox must find a new ally to help him o Claire Bennett, one of the CIA's few diverse recruits. But she's not the one seeking to overturn Knox's bachelor London life.
As the age of global surveillance dawns, three powers will battle for dominance, and three people will fight to survive
