Storyline

John Streyer, a scientist who defected to East Germany 15 years earlier after participating in an espionage ring, has decided to return to the U.S. Two representatives of a nation "unfriendly to the United States" attempt to detain Streyer at John F. Kennedy International Airport but he gets away. Assistant Director Arthur Ward, already in New York on FBI business, works in the field with Erskine and Colby on the case. Ward had headed the bureau's espionage desk at the time Streyer escaped capture by defecting to East Germany. Streyer is being squeezed by the FBI, which wants to capture him, and the Eastern Bloc country, which has decided he knows too much and must be silenced. Written by Bill Koenig

The spy who kinda came in from the cold.
4 February 2020 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Richard Kiley plays John Streyer, a man who betrayed the US 15 years ago. However, life in East Germany was not the paradise he'd hoped and now, disillusioned, he's decided to try sneaking back into the United States. Arthur Ward joins Erskine on the case because Ward is very familiar with Streyer--and he investigated the case when Streyer first defected. So, it's up to the FBI to try to find Streyer before his communist 'friends' find him....and liquidate him.

As I've said before, the espionage episodes of "The F.B.I." tend to be some of the better ones. I liked this one because it was different...a defector who is weary and has had enough and just wants it all to end. Well worth seeing and quite interesting.
