Send in the Lions

(1981)
A novel by

 
 
It's time to Send in the Lions...

March, 1985 - an English Concorde is on a routine flight when it's hijacked by unknown terrorists.

Worse still, there were a number of special passengers...

Jennifer North, an actress and movie star.

Ogden Peters, a US general travelling incognito with his new wife.

Andre Labrosse, an important French industrialist.

Anatoli Valkov, the Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister

Then, there's Andrew Munwick Jr. - son and heir of the wealthy and ruthless tycoon Andrew Munwick.

With no forthcoming demands from the terrorists, both the US and Russia form a tentative team to rescue the passengers.

Instead, the terrorists vanish into thin air, taking all four of the VIP passengers as bargaining chips. However, they also take a fifth passenger - a man named Alfred William Ross.

As CIA chief, Cord Warren looks into Ross, he realises that they've unknowingly picked up the one man who might help them the most.

A man more dangerous to the US than the terrorists combined.

Time is of the essence and with no knowledge of Ross' importance, rescuing the hostages' needs to be done quickly. But with both the US and Russia's no-deal policy on terrorist demands, it's going to prove very difficult.

Pressured by Andrew Munwick to get his son back, Warren goes to the only man he knows can help.

If anyone can save them before it's too late, it's George Simpleton...

Send in the Lions is a tense and engaging espionage thriller.
