CIA-analist Jonathan Burke en Kyra Stryker worden ingezet om CIA-bronnen in Rusland te redden na een desastreus lek in de veiligheid van de geheime dienst.
Als een lichaam met Russiche militaire tattoos drijvend in een meer buiten Berlijn wordt gevonden, trekt dit onmiddellijk de aandacht van de CIA. Het lichaam wordt geïdentificeerd als de directeur van Ruslands Stichting voor Gevorderd Nucleair Onderzoek, die al lange tijd op de lijst met CIA-doelwitten staat. Wat de analisten het meeste zorgen baart, is dat de moord samenvalt met het plotselinge overlopen van een van de directeuren van de CIA.
Alden Maines is uitgeput na jarenlang bij de CIA de puinhopen van incapabele politieke functionarissen op gevaarlijke buitenlandse posten te hebben opgeruimd. Als hij wordt overgeslagen voor promotie, besluit hij voor het snelle geld te gaan als dubbelagent voor Rusland.
Maar terwijl Maines droomt van offshorebankrekeningen en een nieuw geheim leven, heeft Arkadi Lavrov van de Russische militaire inlichtingendienst (GROe) andere plannen. Hij maakt Maines' verraad meteen wereldkundig en hoort hem vervolgens tot de laatste druppel informatie uit, inclusief de namen van elke agent in CIA's Moscow Station en hun spionnen in het Kremlin. Maar waarom zou Lavrov een spion uitschakelen wiens informatie en toegang tot geheimen zich de komende jaren nog kunnen uitbetalen? Wat is Lavrov van plan?
Reizend van Langley naar Berlijn en uiteindelijk naar Moscow - undercover en zonder steun - worden analist Jonathan Burke en agent Kyra Stryker met hun meest gevreesde vijand geconfronteerd, en hun leven en het lot van Amerika's meest belangrijke spionnen in de Nieuwe Koude Oorlog balanceren daartussenin.
