On the foggy and desolate Seattle waterfront, a gray-haired, gray-eyed man foils a mugging. His name is Devereaux–the November Man. His act of salvation is the first, unexpected step on a perilous odyssey to the remote wilderness of Alaska. His quest is for a mysterious individual named Henry McGee, the sometimes American, sometimes Russian master manipulator, teller of tales, and treacherous link between opposing superpowers, in a bizarre, far-reaching plot to destroy U.S. intelligence.
The November Man is the unwilling instrument of the plan’s success–or the determined key to its failure. And this time, simply staying alive won’t be enough.
