Action thriller by the classic adventure writer set in Norway and Finland. When Giles Denison of Hampstead wakes up in an Oslo hotel room and finds the face looking back at him in the mirror is not his own, things could surely get no more bizarre. But it is only the beginning of a hair-raising adventure in which Denison finds himself trapped with no way to escape. One false move and the whole delicately balanced power structure between East and West will come toppling down...

About the Author:

Desmond Bagley's transition from unskilled printer's apprentice, aircraft engineer, miner, nightclub photographer and radio scriptwriter to one of the world's most respected thriller writers is legendary. Travelling to almost every continent to research his exotic storylines, he was described by The Times as a `craftsmanlike thriller novelist', whose stories are as exciting today as when they were first published.

Review:

'As long as meticulous craftsmanship and honest entertainment are valued, and as long as action, authenticity, and expertise still make up the strong framework of the good adventure/thriller, Desmond Bagley's books will surely be read.' REGINALD HILL, Twentieth Century Crime and Mystery Writers 'Bagley is a master storyteller.' DAILY MIRROR 'Mr Bagley has no equal at this sort of thing.' SUNDAY MIRROR `Sizzling adventure.' EVENING STANDARD
