It is the early 1970s when Peter Kramer, a special envoy to the President of the United States, successfully concludes an Arab-Israeli peace treaty. A few weeks before the official signing, Kramer's secret past is discovered and threatens to wreck not only the treaty, but also the precarious balance of world peace. It seems Kramer is not who he appears to be.

This startling revelation sets into motion a course of events with roots planted during the Holocaust that now have crept into the highest echelons of international politics and finance-and the events seem to be unstoppable unless some of the players are eliminated. Baruch Ben-David, the prime minister of Israel, owes his life to Kramer and is willing to prove his gratitude many times over. Meanwhile, Simon Jensen, the egocentric President of the United States, appears mentally unstable; and Paul Cline, a political assassin, faces his most difficult challenge.

At the center of this deadly paradox stands Peter Kramer himself as he walks a thin moral tightrope between being a traitor to his people or a traitor to himself.
