Follow along as an ex-CIA agent named Scorpion chases a wily terrorist
across Europe. The international intelligence is thrown into a dither
when the head of Egypt's State Internal Security Intelligence Bureau
is brutally killed. Little is known about the killer, dubbed "the
Palestinian", but everyone realizes this is just the first
of what will be a mounting number of attacks leading towards something
quite extraordinary and deadly.
Only the freelancing Scorpion, who has intimate knowledge of the
Middle East and Europe and plenty of "contacts", can handle
this problem. Once the search for his illusive quarry begins, the
Scorpion will find he's up against a true equal who may well be
able to turn the tables on his pursuer and end his career.
This international espionage thriller offers the high octane adventure
one expects whenever Andrew Kaplan sits down to create a new manuscript.
