Compulsively exciting Middle East thriller by international No. 1 bestselling author
They were forced to meet by the rivers of Babylon...
In Israel, two Concorde jets take off for a UN conference that will finally bring peace to the Middle East. Covered by F-14 fighters, accompanied by security men, the planes carry warriors, pacifists, lovers, enemies, dignatories - and a bomb planted by a terrorist mastermind. Suddenly they're forced to crash-land at an ancient desert site. Here, with only a handful of weapons, the men and women of the peace mission must make a desperate stand against an army of crack Palestinian commandos - while the Israeli authorities desperately attempt a rescue bid.
A story of compulsive excitement, rich in personal drama and political tension that must rank as one of the greatest of our times.
