Abstract:

A retired Green Beret colonel, computer executives and a Texas industrialist join forces to spring two Americans from an Iranian jail in On wings of eagles, Ken Follett's nonfiction bestseller, here dramatized in Brilliance Audio's full-length, multiple-voice edition. Their real-life race against armed patrols and marauding tribesmen to bring Bill Gaylord and Paul Ciapparone home is described in the masterful style that Follett earlier employed in the bestselling thriller, Eye of the needle. A painstaking accurate account of modern heroes and international adventure, On wings of eagles is also a compelling picture of Iran in ferment just before the revolution that put Ayotollah Khomeini in power.
