Hi All,

Don't have a clue as the name. Hubby thinks it was called the Terrible Game of Ott...but can't find this title anywhere

The storyline is set in the cold war era, and United States and Russia are competing for influence of a tiny mountain kingdom. Heros are father and son. Father is an Olymipic athlete who was injured and the son must take over the mission. To gain influence of the kingdom, the son must compete in a deadly game consisting of archery, swordsmanship, wrestling, and ect. Russians send in their top athlete.

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Here are the Book Finder results.  It seems that you can get a pretty reasonably priced copy:  http://www.bookfinder.com/search/?ac=sl&st=sl&qi=LJsN6RV7kauG5qMAL7aIHv5zI7M_8400584693_1:151:758&bq=author%3Ddan%2520tyler%2520moore%26title%3Dterrible%2520game

Good luck!
