A charismatic undercover intelligence officer, posing as a wealthy philanthropist, runs into trouble while on a promotional tour for his charitable foundation. A stage accident injuring one of his senior staff members, her disappearance and mysterious reappearance cause concern that there is a saboteur among his staff.

Working to contain the situation, Eliot Randall must investigate what happened to Leighton Hayes and determine how vulnerable his world-wide covert operations are to exposure. In the process of his investigation, Eliot discovers that his feelings toward Leighton have changed. Torn between his job and his desire to protect Leighton, he must find a way to keep from losing both.
