Summary
The Cold War is ending. Just days before the U.S. President is to visit China for trade talks, a CIA operative named Tom Bishop is captured in a rogue operation at a Chinese prison. He'll be shot in 24 hours unless the President steps in. CIA honchos meet at Langley to control the damage to the diplomatic mission by hanging Bishop out to dry. Enter Nathan Muir with one day before retirement from the Agency. Nathan is the man who recruited and trained Bishop. Now he needs to find a way to get the President to free Bishop. If that fails, he will have to engineer a rescue. He hangs around Langley, telling stories about Bishop and gathers intelligence. He looks for opportunities and decides to run his own spy game
