When Lord Wolfenden saw, in the supper-­room of the Milan Restaurant, a beautiful woman and became acquainted with her by saving the life of her elderly companion, the mysterious Mr. Sabin, as they leave the restaurant, he little knew the web of intrigue into which he was entering. It was impossible not to love the unknown, and it seemed equally impossible to marry her when her identity was known, but Mr. Oppenheim can be depended upon to give his plots that turn which is as admirable as it is unexpected, and this is one of the best of his many good and exciting books.

Through the windy darkness of the late winter evening, along a muddy country lane which was little better than a cart track with a high hedge on one side and a wood on the other, a man, half shuffling, half running, was making such progress as was possible over the sodden, slippery surface. What appearance he might have presented when he had started upon his wild expedition it was impossible to say, for he was covered now with mud from head to foot, a driving rain beating in his face. His dark coat was soaked, his collar and tie simply pulp. He was hatless and his black hair, streaked with grey, was plastered about his face. He ran not as an athlete but with long uneven strides, and he was evidently completely out of condition for such an exploit. He was breathing heavily. The drops of sweat were mingled with the rain which was pouring down his cheeks.

Andrew Tallente stepped out of the quaint little train on to the flower- bedecked platform of this Devonshire hamlet amongst the hills, to receive a surprise so immeasurable that for a moment he could do nothing but gaze silently at the tall, ungainly figure whose unpleasant smile betrayed the fact that this meeting was not altogether accidental so far as he was concerned.

"Miller!­" he exclaimed, a little aimlessly.

The story begins on October 6, 1971, when Jacob Singer is an infantryman with the 1st Air Cavalry Division, deployed in a village in the Mekong Delta during the Vietnam War. Suddenly, his unit comes under heavy fire from the treeline and many of Jacob's comrades are killed and wounded. Soldiers around also begin to exhibit very abnormal behavior, some even going catatonic or collapsing into bloody seizures. Horrified, Jacob attempts to flee into the jungle, only to be stabbed in the stomach with a bayonet by an unseen attacker.

In 1975, Jacob wakes up in the New York City Subway, dressed as a postal worker and with a copy of The Stranger in his hands. After Jacob finds himself locked in the underground he tries to escape via the tracks, where he is nearly hit by a train.
