The true irony is that Mr. Forsyth indicates in his Foreward that he believes in accuracy, yet this book was published in 1980, takes place in April 1982 and references the USSR as current, when it actually dissolved in 1981.

I've read every novel by Frederick Forsyth, and this one is definitely the best. 'The Deceiver' is just about as good. I've given away several copies of both.

Outstanding story, well written and you could not find again in the later Forsyth's novel.
