A thrilling tale of a three man assassination squad whose target is Israel's leading nuclear scientist while he's on a visit to London.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
When Abdel-El-Famy, a Palestinian zealot and would-be terrorist, is sent with two others to assassinate a leading Israeli nuclear scientist giving a lecture in London, he knows that there is little prospect of a safe return. Yet he feels no fear. Famy is prepared to sacrifice himself for his cause, for if he succeeds he knows that the reverberations will be felt throughout the Western World.
But when his hit squad is intercepted by Israeli Intelligence in France and his accomplices are shot, Famy remains determined that this setback will only be temporary in spite of his lack of experience. Upon arrival in Britain, his only contact is Ciaran McCoy, a hardened IRA mercenary. McCoy can provide him with firearms and local knowledge, but the difference in their aims and motivations means that their alliance will always be uneasy. Meanwhile, British Intelligence has assigned a hard-drinking maverick to protect the scientist. Will this be enough to prevent the inevitable bloodshed?

Three Arab guerillas are making their way across northern France, to the ferry port of Boulogne. Their mission is to assassinate a senior Israeli nuclear scientist, due to arrive in London three days later. However, their passage has been logged across Europe by Israeli secret service men: their car is ambushed and two of the team killed. The one survivor, Abdul-el-Famy, escapes and finally joins forces with his contact in London, an IRA gunman who has been told to supply the guerillas with the arms and explosives they need for the attack. In uneasy partnership the two men decide to strike during the scientist's one public appearance - on a lecture rostrum at London University. Meanwhile the Israeli Government steadfastly reafuses to cancel their scientist's visit, leaving the British secret service the thankless job of intervening before it is too late. But how do you stop two unidentified killers, set on glorty at all costs?287 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Academic Literature.)
