Dr. Jonathan Hemlock is a professor of art history who formerly had a deadly secret life; he was a hired assassin working with an international intelligence organization.

Normally content to collect and study art, Hemlock is forced by blackmail to perform one last hit.

The victim will be one of three men attempting a dangerous ascent of the Eiger, a beautiful but punishing mountain in Swiss Alps.

While Hemlock is an experienced mountaineer and willing to make the climb, he's troubled to discover that he does not know which of the other three men scaling the Eiger is his true target.
