Jack is sent to Hungary to provide assistance to Hungarian rebels who are seeking to oust Soviet influences from their country. But all hell breaks loose when the Soviets push back and Jack is taken prisoner, along with Elizabet, an Englishwoman whose Hungarian husband was tortured and her daughter taken from her years earlier. Jack quickly becomes disillusioned after the United States refuses to provide military back up for Hungarian rebels, leaving them to be crushed by an invasion of Soviet tanks. Four years later, Jack is again in the thick of a CIA plan to aid rebels when he is sent to Nicaragua to help Cuban exiles stage an attempt to oust Fidel Castro from power. And once again, Jack is disappointed in his government when the United States fails to offer the full assistance necessary for success, setting the Cuban rebels up for certain defeat. Meanwhile, James Jesus Angleton becomes increasingly obsessed over a rumor that a mole has penetrated the CIA, and he will stop at nothing to hunt the mole down.
