When engineer and army vet Paul Crane agrees to accompany his police officer friend on a night cruise, he never expected a deadly shoot-out would lead to his being recruited in a CIA sting operation involving China and the heroin trade. There is high-voltage suspense from start to finish in this novel by Jerry Pournelle, author of many Co-Dominium novels and co-author with Larry Niven of The Mote in God's Eye, Lucifer's Hammer, Footfall and more. Robert A. Heinlein called it "A hell of a good yarn...the most realistic counter-espionage story I've read in a long, long time."

Engineer and Vietnam vet Paul Crane finds himself once again recruited by the CIA, this time to pretend he'll negotiate the sale of classified information on nuclear weapons to Chinese infiltrators. The CIA doesn't want the FBI to know of this domestic operation, which means Paul is practically on his own in this high-stakes and dangerous game.
