Now the cold war is over, why are the intelligence services of Britain, the United States and Israel so interested in locating and possibly 'eliminating' an elderly Russian scientist? Because he's one of the world's leading experts in biological warfare and he's heading for the Gulf, possibly en route to Iraq. But the action doesn't stop there. For some reason, two agents from the American anti-drug squad are also in hot pursuit. Then there's the group that calls itself Providence Two. Is this really a dangerous terrorist cell, and what is their interest in the runaway scientist? There's even the threat of war in the Middle East when an Israeli intelligence agent stumbles across a consignment of deadly missiles. The outcome is uncertain. Will the Russian scientist find safety, or will he fall victim to one of the hunters? In this tense and exhilarating thriller, you're not sure whose agenda will be the winning one until the final spectacular showdown.
