Haldin, the man who committed the murder, seeks asylum with Razumov--and his assistance in escaping Russia. Razumov has no sympathy for his friend, and gives him up to the Okhrana (the secret police). Reluctantly, Razumov is then recruited as an agent, and is sent to Geneva, Switzerland to infiltrate the radical group behind Haldin. But his guilt consumes him, and he ultimately confesses his crime to Haldins sister. A compelling drama of political terrorism and betrayal.
