Tom Stoppard Price: $12.99

I can't remember which side I'm supposed to be working for, and it is not in fact necessary for me to know

When Kerner's physics research is leaked to the Russians, Elizabeth Hapgood is assigned track down the double agent and try to unravel the mystery of who is passing along top-secret scientific discoveries to the Soviets

But as she does so, the web of personal and professional betrayals doubles and triples and possibly quadruples continues to multiply

Is her star double agent really a triple?

The trap she sets becomes a hall of mirrors in which betrayal is personal and treachery a trick of the light.

REVIEWS

"With his characteristically brilliant wordplay and extraordinary scope, Tom Stoppard has in Hapgood devised a play that spins an end-of-the-cold-war tale of intrigue and betrayal, interspersed with explanations of the quixotic behavior of the electron and the puzzling properties of light" ~ David Richards, The New York Times
