The untold story of the most powerful covert agency in the world.

Edward Wilson, the only witness to his father's suicide and member of the Skull and Bones Society while a student at Yale, is a morally upright young man who values honor and discretion, qualities that help him to be recruited for a career in the newly founded OSS. His dedication to his work does not come without a price though, leading him to sacrifice his ideals and eventually his family.

Edward Wilson, strebsamer Yale-Student, tritt 1939 der geheimen Bruderschaft der "Scull and Bones Society" bei, aus der reihenweise künftige Führungskräfte der Politik hervorgehen. So auch er. Denn schon bald wird er angeworben, seinen Englisch-Professor auszuspionieren - nur der Beginn einer steilen Geheimdienstkarriere. Doch die hat auch ihren Preis. Seine Frau distanziert sich immer mehr von ihm und auch der Kontakt zum geliebten Sohn will sich nicht wirklich einstellen. Am Höhepunkt seiner Macht steht Wilson schließlich alleine da.

Pour Edward Wilson, seul témoin du suicide de son père et membre de la Skull and Bones Society à l'Université de Yale, l'honneur et la discrétion sont des valeurs primordiales. Ce sont ces qualités qui poussent la CIA, l'agence gouvernementale qui vient d'être créée, à le recruter.Influencé par l'ambiance paranoïaque que provoque la Guerre Froide dans toute l'agence, Wilson se montre de plus en plus suspicieux. Son pouvoir grandit, mais il a de moins en moins confiance en ceux qui l'entourent... Son obsession du travail va lui coûter cher, l'isolant chaque jour un peu plus de ses proches et de celui qu'il était...
