It is a time of political unrest in Great  Britain. And behind the Iron Curtain an insidious plot  is being hatched, a plan so incendiary that even  the KGB is ignorant of its  existence--Aurora, the sinister brainchild of two of the  world's most dangerous men: the general secretary  of the Soviet Union and master spy Kim  Philby.

The wheels are in motion, the pawns  are in place, and the countdown has begun toward  an "accident" that could change the fact  of British politics forever and trigger and  collapse of the Western alliance.

Only  British agent John Preston stand any chance of  breaching the conspiracy. Through plot and  counterplot, from bloody back streets to polished halls of  power both East and West, his desperate  investigation is relentlessly blocked by deceit, treachery,  and the most deadly enemy of  all...time.

Frederick Forsyth wrote the novel and screenplay for this story about a plot to stage an enormous nuclear accident in England, a catastrophe so large that its source can never be identified but will lead to assumptions that America is behind it. Michael Caine plays an aging intelligence agent who picks up clues that the ingredients for such an apocalypse are being smuggled piece-by-piece into the U.K.--but he cannot seem to get his superiors to care. Caine is outstanding in a role that seems tailor-made for him, and Pierce Brosnan is very good as the Russian agent working undercover in England to effect the planned tragedy. The film perfectly captures a spreading suspicion and resentment toward superpower adventurism, even though such sentiments are, in fact, being exploited by the bad guys. Caine, as always, suggests a man walking a narrow line through a gauntlet of moral compromises. --Tom Keogh
