In Gil's novel, lead character Roger is a daring liar who has invented a new identity for himself and bluffed his way into M16. He carries out audacious mission for the Disciples, a secret cell of Oxbridge and Ivy League academics who are the masterminds behind the security service. Rogers adventures in Cuba, during a new Cuban Missile Crisis, save the US from imminent rocket attacks, but frustrate the Disciple's political plot against the president. Aided by his assistant, Hebert Yarham, Roger emerges as the top Anglo-US spy, a brilliant deceiver in a world of deceit.
