Peter starts having nightmares about being tortured by enemy spies. At the office, Peter is asked what he knows about a Dr. Volganyn. Peter has read a paper by this scientist theorizing about an invisible radio system - a completely undetectable listening device. The scientist, who is Soviet, is defecting and giving the secrets of the listening device to the British.
