Paris, 1924. Once a promising writer, Will Cotton now faces a humiliating return home, a failure. In a last-minute reprieve, he’s offered steady pay, and a book contract. The catch? He must collect "quiet observations" in neighboring Germany, where a new, lethal political force has taken hold. Broke and desperate to publish his novel, he must decide if success is worth the price of becoming a spy.
