From the cover: “Sunday 13 December: a letter delivered to the White House starts the most breathtaking blackmail of all time. If President Carter does not submit, the price he must pay is nothing less than New York City. The next thirty-six hours are unforgettable. They carry the reader from the Situation Room of the White House to the Nuclear Laboratories of Los Alamos; from the residence of Israel’s Prime Minister to a seaside villa from which a global network of terrorists is commanded. The action moves from the slums, the glittering discos, the glass and steel sheaths of New York into the secret citadels of the CIA, France’s SDECE, Israel’s Mossad; from the regal salons of Paris’s Elysee Palace to the spartan solitudes of the African desert. This extraordinary novel offers a startling insight into a world in crisis, of real men and women reacting, as they and the nations they govern would react, to the deadly menace of the Fifth Horseman.”
