Description

“A high-tech launch site, a missing nuke, and Arab terrorists with nothing to lose . . .”

In the sun-dappled waters of the Aegean, ex-agent Michael Vance pilots the Odyssey II, a handmade replica of the sailcraft of the ancient hero Ulysses. Out of nowhere, a Russian Hind gunship with Arab terrorists at the helm fires upon the tiny ship below. The terrorists’ destination is a tiny Aegean island where a U.S. aerospace corporation carefully guards the Cyclops 20-megawatt laser launch facility. But the company security force is no match for the firepower of the Arab invasion and the launch site is quickly overrun. With helpless horror, the executives can only watch as renegade technicians convert the launch vehicle into a ballistic missile that can deliver their stolen thermonuclear warhead to any city in the U.S.

Left for dead amid the smoking ruins of Odyssey II, Michael Vance washes up on the occupied island – and becomes America’s only hope.

Reviews

  • Gute Unterhaltung a la Dan Brown

    Die Geschichte ist einfach gestrickt, aber dennoch unterhaltsam. Ein wenig zukunfts(nahe) Technik, ein paar Bösewichte, das Militär und die Guten und schon hat man spannende Unterhaltung. Dankbarer Weise kommt der Autor ohne grosse Liebesgeschichte aus. Das Buch zeigt durchaus Parallelen zu den Stories von Dan Brown, bleibt aber technisch deutlich bodenständiger. Ideale Bettlektüre.
