While temporarily stranded at the Frankfurt airport, a member of the British Foreign Office accommodates an unusual request from a woman whom he has never met. Wow! And she isnt even good looking, but she does have an aquiline nose. It somewhat reminds me of an Eric Ambler spy novel, Background to Danger. Well, the whole world seems to be in a dither as students are uprising worldwide. No only that but they are armed to the teeth with all the latest technology in armament courtesy of a filthy rich, immense blob of a woman from Central Europe. Can our two chance acquaintances from Chapter 1 avert worldwide disaster? The theme of this novel expands on one that she wrote twenty years earlier, They Came to Baghdad. Both are quite a departure from her habitual themes.
