“A single spy—in the right place and at the right
moment—may change the course of history.”
Alexsi Ivanovich Smirnov, an orphan and a thief, has been
living by his wits and surviving below the ever-watchful eye
of the Soviet system until his luck finally runs out. In
1936, at the age of 16, Alexsi is caught by the NKVD and
transported to Moscow. There, in the notorious headquarters
of the secret police, he is given a choice: be trained and
inserted as a spy into Nazi Germany under the identity of
his best friend, the long lost nephew of a high ranking Nazi
official, or disappear forever in the basement of the
Lubyanka. For Alexsi, it’s no choice at all.
Over the course of the next seven years, Alexsi has to live
his role, that of the devoted nephew of a high Nazi
official, and ultimately works for the legendary German
spymaster Wilhelm Canaris as an intelligence agent in the
Abwehr. All the while, acting as a double agent—reporting
back to the NKVD and avoiding detection by the Gestapo.
Trapped between the implacable forces of two of the most
notorious dictatorships in history, and truly loyal to no
one but himself, Alexsi’s goal remains the same—survival.
In 1943, Alexsi is chosen by the Gestapo to spearhead one of
the most desperate operations of the war—to infiltrate the
site of the upcoming Tehran conference between Churchill,
Roosevelt, and Stalin, and set them up to be assassinated.
For Alexsi, it’s the moment of truth; for the rest of the
world, the future is at stake.
