The time is post-World War II; the action sweeps from Maine to Georgetown, from Moscow to Miami. Caught up in the tumultuous history that climaxes with the assassination of JFK are intelligence officer Harry Hubbard, a galaxy of fictional and real figures, and the shadows that lurk behind them all.

"The most daring, ambitious and by far the best written of the several very long, daring and ambitious books Norman Mailer has so far produced."--Chicago Tribune

"Interweaves the real and the fictional so skillfully that what we read acquires a double authority: the authority of convincing fiction as well as fact. It treats the CIA as one gigantic living organism and shows us not only how it breathes, moves, hunts, feeds, but also how it dreams...Immense, fascinating, and in a large part brilliant."--Salman Rushdie, The Independent on Sunday
