Philip Davison’s taut, action-packed, emotionally complex series follows the story of a crooked man who desperately wants to go straight. On the second green of a Long Island golf course there are three golf balls and a corpse with a bullet hole in its forehead. The call goes out for Harry Fielding to come in from the cold. With a new suit and a new partner, Harry is back where he least wants to be: playing the deadly games of MI5. It doesn’t help that his apprentice, Johnny Weeks, is a troublemaker with the measured diffidence of a French waiter and the volatility of a pit-bull terrier. Harry goes back to the work he hates but does so well, but as his instructions come in and the purpose of his job doesn’t get any clearer, Harry begins to wonder if he has been set up—and for what purpose.
