A chilling, state-of-the-art Cold War spy thriller & winner of the Guardian Fiction Award, originally published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux in the US under the title The Golden Plough. The final battle of the Cold War is about to begin -- a secret battle for the divided heart of Germany. Bonn, 1983, prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union: Richard Fisher is an agent for the British government passing himself off as a writer and historian and attempting to forge an arms deal with the Russians; Polina Mertz is a beautiful, seductive undercover US operative who captivates him. Both are players in a complex web of ideology, romance, murder and political intrigue that turns upon the drive to push through an arms control agreement dubbed the "Golden Plough" as US, British, German and Russian diplomats secretly meet to contend for the fate of Europe.
