EGYPT - where, hidden deep in the desert, a top-secret project to build a nuclear plant that will give the Arabs the bomb nears completion....

ISRAEL - where the Mossad's top agent, Nat Dickstein, a master of disguise and deceit, is given an impossible mission: to beat the Arabs in the arms race by finding and stealing 200 tons of uranium without any other nation discovering the theft....

RUSSIA - where top KGB officials have decided to tip the atomic balance in Egypt's favor....

ENGLAND - where Dickstein makes what could be the fatal mistake of his career by falling under the seductive spell of Suzie Ashford, the dazzling, dark-haired beauty who may be his dearest ally or his deadliest enemy....

THE HIGH SEAS - where the Mossad, KGB, Egyptians, and Fedayeen terrorists play out the final violent, bloody moves in a devastating game where the price of failure is nuclear holocaust.

Hmmmmm.... not great.

I am a huge fan of Ken Follett but I am not really impressed with this book. It was just ok. I found it rather boring - slow moving.
