An account of Newcomb Mott, a twenty-seven-year-old textbook salesman from Sheffield, Massachusetts, who crossed into the USSR at remote Boris Gleb, a Soviet salient on the Norwegian border, in September 1965, and was arrested by the KGB. The author, an award-winning book and film writer with an interest in foreign affairs, describes the trial and conviction in Murmansk and the subsequent Soviet announcement that Mott had slashed his throat aboard a train en route to a prison work camp to serve an eighteen-month sentence for violating the Soviet border.
