Publisher's Summary

It is 1968. Israeli Intelligence has learned that Egypt, with Soviet help, will develop atomic bombs within months - an untimely end for the young nation, unless a source of uranium for Israeli bombs can be found. That's impossible, of course, unless someone as improbable as the plan itself can be found to steal it.

Working alone, Israeli agent Nat Dickstein concocts an ingenious scenario for the biggest, and quietest, hijacking in history. Against him are the Russian KGB, Egyptian Intelligence, and the Arab extremist group known as the Fedayeen. With him is a half-English, half-Arab young woman of uncertain allegiance, who discovers Dickstein's Achilles' heel.

Great listening

I was unsure what to expect but I have saved this to cd, transfered it to my Zen player and listened to it frequently.
