An unlikely individual is chosen, William Dafoe, a Canadian. Dafoe’s claim to fame is that of an international salesman having sold products to more than 62 governments. He is a widower with only two passions, his daughter and his job. He has few good words for any politician, but as the consummate salesman he can deal with anyone. The most important thing, as Dafoe puts it, is to close the sale.
Dafoe negotiates a reprieve from the aliens that involves all the countries of earth destroying all of their weapons of mass destruction and the elimination of the use of all nuclear power, but he also has new technologies and cures for some of earth’s worst diseases. Can he sell the agreement to the leaders of the nations?
On his return human paranoia sets in; he is accused of being part of a conspiracy to disarm earth. He faces potential murder charges. He is shot at by government agents.
In the middle of undertaking the assignment he falls in love with one of the members of the US President’s cabinet and much of his mental prowess is involved in this new relationship.
Written in the first person Dafoe tells the story of what he faced, from the decision to be earth’s emissary to meetings with the UN Security Council and the General Assembly.
