[quote]Communism is collapsing, and soon both East and West will tear down the Berlin Wall.
But there is one last situation for MI6, Britain’s intelligence service, to resolve. Two weeks ago, an undercover MI6 officer was killed in Berlin. He was carrying information from a source in the East — a list that contains the name and details of every espionage officer in the city, on all sides.
But no list was found on his body.
MI6 sent Lorraine Broughton, an experienced spy with no ties to Berlin, to recover the list.
