A short and numbing episode in brainwashing. The question that will keep readers going is, ""How much will psychologically, physiologically and philosophically weak David Lynam give away to the enemy each day?""

International espionage action on his behalf interrupts passages from his diary of reluctant defection. The horrification lies in the mind-bending techniques. Try it as something different for men.
