George Peppard is a British undercover agent out to prove that a colleague is really a double agent.

Supposedly a triple-cross suspenser, film [from a story by Gordon McDonell] just lies there so that interest fades fast in the over-exposition and redundancy. Peppard is cast as an American-raised Briton whose latest spy caper has been aborted. Nigel Patrick and Charles Gray, Peppard’s superiors, don’t believe his charges that Keith Michell is a double agent.

Joan Collins appears occasionally as Michell’s wife, and sometimes playmate of Peppard and also of George Baker. Judy Geeson appears even less frequently as Peppard’s girl friend who helps him obtain secret information.
