Overview

1981

With serious concerns about the conflicts within the Vatican hierarchy, President Reagan selects Colin McHugh, an international businessman, to secretly advise the Commandant of the Swiss Guard, the one man directly responsible for the safety of the Pontiff, that a Russian plot to assassinate Pope John Paul II is imminent.

Unmasked by the Bulgarian cadre in Rome assigned to carry out the plot, McHugh discovers the identity of its leader and is also targeted for elimination.

While the commandant bolsters the pope's security and the Bulgarian cadre rehearses the assassin, McHugh, seeking information about the timing of the plot, evades kill attempts outside Rome, in Zurich and in the English countryside.

The action moves swiftly, driven by a compelling cast: Claudette Arriaga, the airline stewardess with whom McHugh develops a personal relationship, helps him escape kill attempts outside Rome and in Zurich. *** Admiral Dan Stringer, Deputy Director of Reagan's National Security Staff shakes the power tree in Washington to support McHugh, his Annapolis classmate. *** Dimitar Botov, the young Bulgarian lad conscripted to work for the Bulgarian cadre, possesses detailed information that could foil the assassination *** Kalina Lubanov, the seductive, but vicious Bulgarian agent, stalks McHugh *** and, Colonel Vic Vitucci, the Air Commando Leader, aborts his stratagem to allow McHugh to do it his way.

All play captivating roles in THE TRIESTE INTRIGUE...propelling the reader back to that shocking event on May 13th 1981.
