A murder occurs inside the Ministry of Top Secret Information, despite the fact that the security there makes it impossible for an outsider to get in. After Steed and Tara investigate, a handwriting expert confirms that documents written by Ministry personnel match the handwriting of Boris Kartovski, a Soviet agent supposedly killed by Steed in Berlin in 1963. As the number of traitors and murders increases, Steed and Tara discover that Boris Kartovski is still alive, although now an invalid; and someone is transferring his personality into the minds of the ministry men and then using these involuntary traitors to commit murders from the inside…
