"Nominally a spy thriller, Stepper is based on the real exploits of pre-war Russian spies operating in Japan. It is an existential study of a spy who, in a world where identity is not a fixed idea, fails to secure his own stable identity."--Author's website.
1997. First paperback edition. A very good copy only marked by age tanning to the pages and light creasing to the wraps.
