About this Item

Originally published by Harper Collins. FRANK AND ZOOT are two battle-scarred romantics. Friends and adventurers who have distinguished themselves by flyingunpopular missions in various undeclared wars, they repeatedly smack into turbulence in their own lives. Franks need to be in the kingdom of the air invariably triumphs over any desire for a quiet and routine life. And Zoot has never quite recovered from the breakup of his marriage to the beautiful Lela, who vanished mysteriously from his life over twenty years ago. Hes tried to forget her - replace her with other women - but has failed miserably. Now Zoots entire lifes mission is to find Lela, and Willard - the enigmatic man from Washington whom Frank and Zoot refer toas the Prince of Darkness - has promised to reveal her whereabouts if he and Frank will retrieve a priceless object code-named Tiara from Baghdad before the Gulf War hits. So whats Tiara Nuclear weaponry, gold bars, secret documents Wrong. Tiaras a fiery young woman with absolutely no intention of leaving her clothing, video-tapes and parties behind because of aninconvenient war. In their many and varied adventures, Zoot and Frank have never encountered anything or anyone quite like Tiara. The struggle tobring her to safety is at turns hilarious and poignant, a battle of strong wills and deep emotions, not to mention a little fracas withsome materialistic Iraqi soldiers. Funny, sexy and studded with wry zingers on love, lust and the aches and pains of the soul, Tiara is a wild romp of a novel, a non-stop adventure tale, zapped with real danger and deadpan humor.
