Abstract:

Syria: 1970. Three years after the Six Days War. Michael Howell - utterly apolitical and genetically programmed for survival. A Levantine mongrel of Armenian, Lebanese, Greek Cypriot, Syrian and "fractionally" British blood who possessed profitable businesses throughout the Middle East and an Italian mistress who doubled as the office manager. So life was sweet for Michael Howell until one night in Damascus he discovered that his factories had become the clandestine operations base of the Palestinian Action Force - a fanatical terrorist organisation committed to the destruction of Israel - and he was caught in the middle with nowhere to run.
