Storyline

The discovery of a nuclear lab in suburban England prompts Harry to activate a long-quiet sleeper agent, a university professor who must sacrifice, albeit temporarily, his name and maybe even his family to trick terrorists into thinking he's created red mercury, a highly efficient chemical detonator. As the op progresses, Tom begins to doubt the wisdom of shaking the sleeper's life to the ground and tries to get the mission scrubbed. Written by Anonymous
