Based on the 1984 novel of the same title by John Hale, The Whistle Blower is a British spy thriller film. Robert Jones (Nigel Havers), a Russian linguist working for a British intelligence agency, is found dead, apparently having committed suicide. However, his father, Frank (Michael Caine), fails to believe Robert took his own life so decides to investigate the death himself. Jones' investigations unearth Cold War paranoia and put his own life in danger from government agents whose only agenda is to preserve Britain's foreign relations, no matter what the cost.
