Washington DC, 1953. The Cold War is heating up: McCarthyism, with all its fear and demagoguery, is raging in the nation’s capital, and Joseph Stalin’s death has left a dangerous power vacuum in the Soviet Union. The CIA, meanwhile, is reeling from a double agent within their midst. Someone is selling secrets to the Soviets, compromising missions around the globe. Undercover agents have been assassinated, and anti-Communist plots are being cut short in ruthlessly efficient fashion. The CIA director knows any news of the traitor, whose code name is Protocol, would be a national embarrassment and compromise the entire agency.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A richly atmospheric and emotionally complex…tale of spies versus spies in the Cold War. Vidich writes with an economy of style that acclaimed espionage novelists might do well to emulate. This looks like the launch of a great career in spy fiction.” Booklist (starred review)
“A moody debut spy novel inspired by real events…Dead-on Cold War fiction. Noir to the bone.” Kirkus Reviews
“This dark and twisty story kept me biting my nails while glued to every page. I literally couldn’t put it down. If you like a good spy novel, then I’m recommending this one.” Popcorn Reads
