Serena Frome, the beautiful daughter of an Anglican bishop, finds herself being groomed for the intelligence services in her final year as a student at Cambridge. Recruited into MI5 against a backdrop of the Cold War, Serena, a compulsive reader, is assigned to infiltrate the literary circle of a promising young writer whose politics align with those of the government.
