Summary
Until 1955, CIA analyst Henry March was just another faceless company man. But after his partner betrays him, Henry and his family are relocated to San Francisco, where he is forced to oversee a series of insidious mind-control experiments. Each day that Henry spends supervising the hapless men lured into his facility with no idea of what they're about to endure, weighs on him until his identity frays. There comes a point when he can no longer separate himself as the company man from the family man, thus he makes a decision to vanish into the night abandoning his family forever. Two decades later, Dickie Ashby, a young CIA investigator, is sent to Los Angeles to infiltrate a group of bank-robbing radicals claiming to have been abused by a government brainwashing operation, which sounds a lot like Henry's project. While the members of the group cannot trust their memories, they know that they need to find Henry March, and the only bridge to Henry is Hannah, Henry's once precocious, sensitive daughter, who now owns a photography gallery in the city. Dickie finds himself dragged into the stunning legacy of the experiments, torn between doing his job, helping these people he is tempted to believe, and protecting Hannah from all of them, including himself
