US Kirkus Review » MacLean reuses the assassination-attempt formula, cuts himself in on a high stake game, and plays it for all it's worth - a half a billion dollars. More than traffic is stopped on the Golden Gate bridge when the motorcade of the president of the US, an Arab king and an Arab prince, and two ministers are halted by a real megalomaniac, Peter Branson, whose asking demands are $300,000,000 for their lives and $200,000,000 for the bridge - wired to go off. "Good God." "He won't help." But Paul Revson, plain-clothes FBI super-operative is on hand to deactivate the mechanisms, frighten off all of Branson's aides, and surprise Branson himself during the televised spectacular held mid-stream, you might say. Barely there is a pretty press correspondent April Wednesday, but then there's not much time for her while there's lots else to usurp the attention of MacLean's steady transceivership.

Author Biography - Alistair MacLean

Alistair MacLean, the son of a Scots minister, was brought up in the Scottish Highlands. In 1941 he joined the Royal Navy. After the war he read English at Glasgow University and became a schoolmaster. The two and a half years he spent aboard a wartime cruiser were to give him the background for HMS Ulysses, his remarkably successful first novel, published in 1955. He is now recognized as one of the outstanding popular writers of the 20th century, the author of 29 worldwide bestsellers, many of which have been filmed.
