About this title


A Palestinian terrorist group has seduced an English Army computer programmer with access to the base deep inside the Rock of Gibraltar.

From Publishers Weekly:

The imaginary fall of British Gibralter to Arab terrorists sets the stage for a repeat performance by CIA agents James Burlane and Ellen Nidich, recruits in Hoyt's Dragon Portfolio. Infiltrating the tents of wickedness as a belly dancer, Ellen coordinates data with James in his bird-expert persona. Their contacts, amorous and otherwise, give an added dimension to intelligence operations. The only successful seizure of the Rock, attempted by many since the 14th century, doesn't last. Credit for trouncing the foe is due the loving spies' daring strategy and the terrorists themselves, diverted from fighting by a chance to caper on TV. Speeding to locations around the world, the scenario lampoons a dippy U.S. President, a bestselling spy novelist and TV types lusting for top ratings. The capper to the ferocious, bawdy burlesque occurs when the Royal Navy sails the female British Prime Minister to the regained fortress. She's upstaged, by the Gilbralter ape Puking Max, who rules the Rock and instructs the lady in protocol.
