He describes himself as "just a civil servant." But in the cloak-and-dagger world of the British security services, mild-mannered Mr. Palfrey is an invaluable player in the spy game. A master of counterespionage and a spy-catcher extraordinaire, he is smart, discreet, cunning and likes to do things his own way. His new boss quickly realizes the talents and the dangers of the deceptively charming, utterly ruthless Palfrey. Known simply as "the Coordinator" she appoints an assistant to work with Palfrey, but report back to her. As always, however, Palfrey has his own ideas.
