Two British agents must prevent a devastating weapon from falling into enemy hands||The classic Jack Higgins thriller||In the hotly contested Falkland Islands, an underground struggle rages between Argentinean agents seeking to buy black-market Exocet missiles and the British officials who will do anything to stop them.
British intelligence dispatches two operatives to prevent the spread of the state-of-the-art weapons, and the odds are stacked against them. Tony Villiers and Gabrielle Legrand must overcome their complicated past and take down the international arms dealer at the center of the conflict before two nations are brought to their knees.
Though born in Newcastle-on-Tyne, Jack Higgins grew up in Belfast amid chaotic political unrest made even more significant by his family's political involvements. He later moved to Leeds, where he earned a teacher's certificate in 1958. This allowed him to acquire a variety of teaching positions that took him through Yorkshire and eventually to London, where he received a B.S. in sociology at the University of London in 1962. Before becoming an internationally best-selling author, Higgins held such jobs as circus tent-hand and tram conductor. But when his novel "The Eagle Has Landed" hit the bookstores in 1975, Higgins embarked upon a successful career writing thrillers varying in themes from organized crime to political and military conspiracies.
