History Is Made At Night
Harry, a seasoned CIA agent in his mid forties, wants nothing more than to forget his years of duty in places like Nicaragua and to become his cover as a jazz club owner in Helsinki.
Natasha, a young and ambitious KGB agent with more chutzpah than experience, wants to secure a future for herself amid the uncertainty of the floundering KGB and Russian Republic.
Natasha's assignment to spy on Harry has blossomed into a torrid love affair. Like any two career couple they keep secrets from each other. But theirs have international implications.
The delicate balance of their life together is disrupted when a young, over eager CIA agent, Dave, arrives in Helsinki to intercept a videotape encoded with state secrets en route from New York - its concepts so hot that everybody who touched the tape is now dead. Dave pursues the unsuspecting courier, Max, a manic ex-bond trader who stumbled into the delivery job fresh from a prison sentence for SEC fraud.
For Natasha, the tape could be a ticket out of the KGB and into the American dream - if she crosses her boss. But as satellites hover overhead and the rusting Russian fleet leaks radiation nearby, absolutely everyone except Harry hatches a personal plan to exploit the encoded tape.
Harry is left to try to stop Natasha from getting herself killed - or worse, leaving him for America.
