Overview
The master of the political thriller, John Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate), has done it again – this time focusing his astute lens on Rome in the late seventies, a time in which the classical city is rocked by political unrest.

American journalist David Raybourne (Andrew McCarthy) has arrived in Rome to write a political best seller about The Red Brigade, a militant left-wing group terrorizing Italy. When a daring photojournalist (Sharon Stone) believes Raybourne's book to be a piece of non-fiction... the manuscript falls tragically into the wrong hands.

Now fictional characters named after Raybourne's closest friends and colleagues suddenly become real enemies of both the terrorists and the police. Accused of knowing too much, Raybourne's real problem is that he knows too little about the politics of Rome, about the secret lives of his friends and about the loyalties of his lovers.
