It is an era of social, political and economic turmoil. The times are rife with demonstrations for civil rights, political assassinations, mass political movements, the Vietnam War, the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis and presidential impeachment, revolution and the magic and promise of rock and roll.

He is excited at the prospects of being able to undertake some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in. However, he will learn that the world is a much more dangerous place than heâ€™d imagined. Dimka Dvorkin is a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev. She becomes a principal player as the United States of America and the Soviet Union race towards nuclear war.
