Description
In 1953, at the end of the Korean War, Dr. Charles Wilson, an Army bio-weapons scientist, died when he "jumped or fell" from the ninth floor of a Washington hotel. As his wife and children grieve, the details of his death remain buried for twenty-two years. With the release of the Rockefeller Commission report on illegal CIA activities in 1975, LSD is linked to Wilson's death, and suddenly the Wilson case becomes news again. Wilson's family and the press are demanding answers, suspecting the CIA of foul play, and men in the CIA, FBI, and White House conspire to make sure the truth doesn't get out. Enter agent Jack Gabriel, an old friend of the Wilson family who is instructed by the CIA director to find out what really happened to Wilson. It's Gabriel's last mission before he retires from the agency, and his most perilous as he finds a continuing cover-up that reaches to the highest levels of government. Key witnesses connected to the case die from suspicious causes, and Gabriel realizes that the closer he gets to the truth, the more he puts himself and his family at risk. Following in the footsteps of spy fiction greats such as Graham Green, John Le Carre, and Alan Furst, Paul Vidich presents a tale -- based on the unbelievable true story told in Netflix's Wormwood -- that doesn't shy away from the true darkness in the shadows of espionage.
