"Irresistible reading. A swift, exciting novel of unrelenting suspense...MacInnes proves that her deft wizardry is still supreme in this field." -Sir Willliam Stephenson (the man called "Intrepid")
From the inside dust jacket cover: "When Bob Renwick left NATO to establish Interintell, a counter-terrorist agency operating under the legitimate cover of world-wide engineering consultants, he knew grim work would be routine. But he was not prepared for the Minus List.
Exports Consolidated, an established American munufacturer, had recently switched from farm equipment to sophisticated military hardware-arms, combat devices, explosives. In total secrecy, it had joined with a highly guarded, ultra-private European muniitons combine. Together they are operating hidden training camps in remote areas and are supplying everything necessary for violent subversion-from sabotage to guerrilla warfare. Their customers range from local underground groups to countries that embrace terrorism as an undeclared national policy.
This is part of the ominous world Renwick's small band of intelligence specialists encounters daily. Even the discovery of an assassination list of nine selected victims is not surprising. What startles Renwick, at least momentarily, is that his name is number three on that Minus List."
