From an Oxford sherry party to a nuclear showdown between the Mossad, the KGB and the PLO, this #1 bestseller gives its listeners three deadly enemies in a story packed with explosive power. Read by Edward Woodward, star of "The Equalizer".Book Description:
It is 1968. Israeli Intelligence has learned that Egypt, with Soviet help, will develop atomic bombs within months – an untimely end for the young nation unless a source of uranium for Israeli bombs can be found. Impossible, of course, unless someone as improbable as the plan can be found to steal it. Working alone, Israeli agent Nat Dickstein concocts an ingenious scenario for the biggest, and quietest, hijacking in history. Against him are the Russian KGB, Egyptian Intelligence and the Arab extremists Fedayeen. With him is a half-English, half-Arab young woman of uncertain allegiance, who discovers Dickstein’s Achilles’ heel.
