Screen legend Michael Caine (The Ipcress File, The Holcroft Covenant) gives a riveting performance as an ordinary man caught in a web of corruption and murder in this gripping, taughtly handled and highly charged espionage thriller. English patriot and army vet Frank Jones (Caine) is only mildly concerned when his son Bob, who works for the British Secret Service, says dirty dealings are afoot at the agency. But then Bob is murdered under mysterious circumstances. And Frank’s inquiries thrust him in the middle of a rat’s nest of government deceit that reaches up through the ranks to a traitorous spy (John Gielgud, Murder by Decree) whose secret could cost Frank his own life as well. James Fox (Performance), Nigel Havers (Empire of the Sun), Barry Foster (Frenzy) and Gordon Jackson (The Great Escape) co-star in this suspenseful and intelligent political thriller directed by Simon Langton (Smiley’s People) that will keep you guessing until the very last frame.
