'Bush Baby' is the code name of an ingeniously designed robot spy. Its purpose is to detect underground nuclear explosions, and the West has succeeded in illegally unleashing a number of them in the Communist world. Then something goes wrong. The robot spy planted in a remote part of Yugoslavia begins to transmit unsolicited messages, enabling the Communists to get on with a series of undetected nuclear tests. A highly skilled technician will have to locate and dismantle it--and Giles Yeoman, a young research scientist, is clearly the man for the job. Once in Yugoslavia, by way of Munich and a walk across the width of Austria, Giles finds that much more is at stake than he has been led to believe. Assisted by Amanda Grayle, a beautiful agent trained in bomb-disposal operations, he finally locates Bush Baby--but that is only the beginning of a mission charged with terrifying implications....
