They are immigrants, working in American laboratories and universities. They are Soviet spies, forced into a network of terror, with their families dangling as hostages. When Devereaux--the November Man--uncovers the brutal scheme, the forces of both East and West mark him and the woman he loves for death. From California to Chicago to Switzerland, the November Man tracks the cold-blooded mastermind who controls the numbers. In a vicious maze of power, murder, and greed, every enemy may be a friend--and every friend, a sudden traitor.
