"Relics of the Cold War, four-phase men are CIA legends. Experts in all four of the most critical, most specialized areas of black operations - intelligence gathering, counterintelligence, electronic warfare, assassination - four-phase men are capable of carrying out the most complicated, dangerous, and deadly missions alone. And since the earliest stages of the O.S.S., there have been only seven of this special breed. Today, just two remain alive - Colin Meadows and Gerald Goldman. Trained from youth to do America's dirty work, Meadows and Goldman never came in from the cold and are now outsiders looking in. Meadows is a play-for-play operative for the People's Republic of China, and Goldman is in self-imposed exile." "Now, after twenty-five years of careful planning and masterful intelligence theft, the Chinese have seized the opportunity to awaken a sleeper spy in the United States. With Meadows ringleading the mole's path to the White House, Goldman is the only man capable of derailing a brilliant stratagem for a silent coup."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

It was an ok story. Typical bad guy/good guy/tortured spy story. Wasn't quite as gripping as I had hoped after reading Steinberg's book 'The Gemini Man'. Read full review
