Topaz (novel)

"Topaz" is a thriller novel written by Leon Uris and published in 1967. The Cold War-era story concerns an alleged plot between the Russians and Cubans, and a spy ring with connections to both. It also speaks about the Russian infiltrations into the French intelligence. The main characters of the book are fast friends Michael Nordstorm and Andre Devereaux of the American and French intelligence. Devereaux goes out of way to get evidence of Soviet missiles in Cuba. He has information of Soviet links in French intelligence but is himself targeted when he reveals this to the French president. But he continues with his fight and exposes the mole ultimately seeking asylum in America with Nordstorm's help.

In 1969 Alfred Hitchcock directed a film based on the book.
