Summary: Only Frederick Forsyth, author of the worldwide bestsellers The Day Of The Jackal and The Deceiver, could have conceived this daring untold story about the Gulf War...
From the behind-the-scenes decision-making of the Allies to the secret meetings of Saddam Hussein's war cabinet, from the brave American fliers running their dangerous missions over Iraq to the heroic young spy planted deep in the heart of Bagdad, Forsyth's imcomparable storytelling skill keeps the suspense at a breakneck pace. Somewhere in Bagdad is the mysterious "Jericho," the traitor who is willing -- for a price -- to reveal what is going on in the high councils of the Iraqi dictator. But Saddam's ultimate weapon has been kept secret even from his most trusted advisers, and the nightmare scenario that haunts General Schwarzkopf and his colleagues is suddenly imminent unless, somehow, the spy can locate the weapon in time.
Peopled with vivid characters, brilliantly displaying Forsyth's incomparable knowledge of intelligence operations and tradecraft, moving back and forth between Washington and London, Bagdad and Kuwait, desert vastness and city bazaars, this breathtaking novel is an uttely convincing story of what may actually have happened behind the headlines.
