Dr. Jonathan Hemlock, art professor, mountaineer, and occasional assassin, is called upon by a secret agency of the U.S. government to perform two more "sanctions" (contract assassinations). He will need to climb the Eiger to complete his task. He goes back into training and eventually climbs the mountain with a team that he believes includes his victim—whose identity he will have to deduce on the mountain. Poor climbing conditions disrupt the climb, and lead Hemlock to the discovery that his target is someone other than he had expected.
