Former seminarian Christopher Boyce, sometimes called The Falcon because of his passion for falconry, has taken a job for a defense contractor. When he learns of unsavory things done by the CIA, he decides to begin selling some of America’s classified secrets to the Soviet Union. He enlists the help of Andrew Daulton Lee, a drug dealer called the Snowman because of his dealings in cocaine. Lee is greedy for money and agrees to act as Boyce’s contact with the KGB. Lee gets deeply into the espionage and wants to keep it going, but Boyce wants to pull out, so the two of them begin to part ways. Lee’s carelessness eventually leads to his arrest, and Boyce is also discovered.
