October 1962. If the Cuban gamble goes wrong and war breaks out, Britain will no longer exist.
London dispatches a secret envoy to defuse the confrontation.
Spawned in the bleak poverty of an East Anglian fishing port, Catesby is a spy with a big anti-establishment chip on his shoulder.
He loves his country, but despises the class who run it.
London has authorised Catesby to offer Moscow a secret deal to break the Cuban Missile Crisis deadlock - but before that can happen, Catesby meets the Midnight Swimmer, who has a chilling message for Washington.
