Inhaltsangabe: Casey Collins, a U. S. Foreign Service officer, is thrown into a maelstrom of agony when she learns a New York bound flight from England exploded soon after takeoff, like a grim Lockerbie Two. Casey fears that her lover Stefan Krajewski, a Polish operative for Danish Defense Intelligence, was on the ill-fated flight and promptly flies to Europe to learn the truth. But she is swiftly embroiled in a twisted series of events that paint her as a terrorist conspirator and a suspect in the airline bombing. Discredited by her own State Department, pursued by the FBI, wanted by Interpol, Casey is a fugitive whose only protection is a small band of skilled agents operating outside of the law.
With her career and credibility in ruins, Casey has only one chance to bring the malicious mastermind behind the bombing to justice before he can massacre any more innocent people. Setting herself up as a fake mediator for U. S. interests, she conceives a dangerous strategy for gaining access to her target. Hurled into a relentless, death-dealing mission, she senses a multi-leveled web of deception tightening around her, forcing her to rely on people she neither knows nor trusts--any one of whom might sacrifice her life for his own corrupt motives.
In the pulsating tradition of Robert Ludlum and Helen MacInnes comes an electrifying international thriller, a breakneck race against time to prevent a wave of airborne terrorism. Writer Diana Deverell goes behind today's explosive headlines and takes readers on a whirlwind international chase as a lone woman stands between a diabolical terrorist and the completion of his deadly master plan.
Rezension: Diana Deverell was a U.S. Foreign Service officer in such places as San Salvador and Poland. So when she has the central character of her tough and moving debut thriller give us inside details of a State Department agency dedicated to fighting terrorists, they have the smack and tang of reality. Kathryn "Casey" Collins finds her work becoming personal and very dangerous when her renegade Polish intelligence agent-lover Stefan Krajewski appears to have been one of the 200-plus victims in the bombing of an airliner on the 10th anniversary of the Lockerbie massacre. When Casey tries to do some freelance digging, she somehow becomes one of the bad guys--targeted by the FBI for possible involvement in the bombing. Also hot on her trail are the terrorists themselves, looking for revenge for the role she and Stefan played in nabbing the original Lockerbie villains. Add to the mix an inscrutable Danish Lutheran priest and Army officer (known as Father-Major) now running a covert intelligence operation and you have a milieu worthy of the best of Len Deighton, if not John Le Carré. With those and other masters of the espionage genre making increasingly rare appearances these days, it's good to have someone as skilled as Deverell arriving so stylishly on the scene. --Dick Adler
