Jostin was an exiled Czechoslovakian official who worked with Jan Masaryk in Prague until just before Masaryk's death and the eventual takeover by Communists. The book presents the author's inside view of the Czechoslovakian crisis, which he attributes to careful planning done in Moscow. Josten also asserts that Masaryk's death was a suicide rather than the result of murder.
