Victor Sebastian was an American counterspy posing as a Communist agent in Europe. His code name was "Five Fingers" and his mission was to feed information on Communist activities to the United States Government. Sebastian's public cover was that of a theatrical booking agent who placed musical talent in clubs and cafes all over the continent. In this capacity he traveled with a beautiful young fashion model, Simone Genet, who aspired to become a singer. Romance blossomed between them, which complicated their relationship since she was not aware of his espionage activities. The only person who did know was Robertson, Sebastian's American contact.
