To get his agent out, Pappas turns to a secret British spy team known as The Increment, whose operatives carry the modern version of the double-O license to kill. But the real story here is infinitely more complicated than he understands, and to get to the bottom of it he must betray his own country The Increment is The Spy Who Came In from the Cold set in Iran, with a dose of Graham Greene's The Human Factor to highlight the subtleties of betrayal.
