Rated 5 out of 5 by from More intreague from the master with a final twist. As ever, Alistair Maclean weaves a wonderful web of inteague keeping the reader right to the end. It is interesting to read Maclean who wrote largely before the advent of computers and therefors his stories are more about the individuals involved rather than sophisticated electronics. A great tale which I could not put down until I had reached the end. Brilliant.
