On the foggy and desolate Seattle waterfront, a gray-haired, gray-eyed man foils a mugging. His name is Devereaux--the November Man. His act of salvation is the first, unexpected step on a perilous odyssey to the remote wilderness of Alaska. His quest is for a mysterious individual named Henry McGee, the sometimes American, sometimes Russian master manipulator, teller of tales, and treacherous link between opposing superpowers, in a bizarre, far-reaching plot to destroy U.S. intelligence.
The November Man is the unwilling instrument of the plan's success--or the determined key to its failure. And this time, simply staying alive won't be enough.
