Readers join George L. Toomey II, a down-on-his-luck actor, as he traverses the seas as an entertainer on a cruise ship. Hiding from the KGB on Cape Cod, Toomey pines for the past, when he was one of Broadway's top stars and always in demand. Toomey is not just any hapless, underemployed actor: he was a spy for the United States during the Cold War. Espionage ruins his life and successful career after he undertakes a dangerous mission, during which he goes behind the Iron Curtain under the guise of his participation in a cultural exchange tour that brought Broadway entertainment to Russia. After Toomey's mission goes awry, he finds himself in grave danger. (http://www.theactor.biz/the-actor-.html)
Welling says, "The book is a metaphor for resilience. There isn't any actor, director, or anyone who has ever worked on Broadway, or in any business, who didn't need to develop resilience to survive."
