Summary
"Petty crook Skip McCoy has his eyes fixed on the big score. When the cocky three-time convict picks the pocketbook of unsuspecting Candy, he finds a haul bigger than he could have imagined: a strip of microfilm bearing confidential U.S. secrets. Tailed by manipulative Feds and the unwitting courier's Communist puppeteers, Skip and Candy find themselves in a precarious gambit that pits greed against redemption, Right versus, Red, and passion against self-preservation"--Container
