There is virtually no paper trail but, somehow, the plan has sprung a leak. The plotters must urgently trace it or face deadly consequences. Meanwhile, at work elsewhere on another highly sensitive project for “the Company” is an operative known as “the Weeder” a man obsessed with American history and one of its heroes. When the Weeder’s and Washington’s clandestine worlds collide, the present faces the past and disturbing moral choices are weighed against a shining patriotic dream. What is the truth?
