Enter Jeff Dalkin, an ex-FBI agent who suffers from Tourette's syndrome and looks exactly like Bruce Willis. Hired by the secretive Harvey Kimbach to fulfill Riddle's request, Dalkin soon finds his life complicated by a second assignment.
The assistant director of the FBI has a problem, and Dalkin is the solution. Former CIA official Miles Stohlman has turned up in Havana, suffering from paranoid delusions. Has he been kidnapped? Is he a traitor? Dalkin must risk life and liberty to find out.
As events reach a climax, Dalkin finds more questions than answers. Why is Kimbach so evasive about the source of the data he gives to Dalkin? Is Riddle hiding a secret of his own? What shocking revelations are contained in Stohlman's diary?
Spurred on by visions of huge financial rewards, Dalkin becomes the target of a global manhunt, with the CIA, the FBI, Cuban intelligence agents, and Libyan thugs hot on his trail.
