|Summary, etc.:||October 1962. In Cuba, Soviet ships off-load what intelligence reveals to be nuclear missiles. In Washington, President Kennedy and his advisers are in furious debate over how long they can wait to discover what the Soviets intend before dropping the first bomb. And in Ithaca, New York, Margo Jensen - a nineteen-year-old Cornell sophomore - is swept up in a 'bizarre concatenation of circumstances' that will make of her the 'back channel' liaison between Soviet Premier Khrushchev and Kennedy.|
