A book that's filled with suspense and intrigue, this book has focus on the political side of the countries.
Mary Ashley is an accomplished scholar who has suddenly become the new US ambassador to an Iron Curtain country. She is about to dramatically change the course of world events but she has been marked for death by the world's most proficient assassin. Only two people can offer her help but she comes to believe that one of them is out to kill her.
This book certainly makes you feel like, oh no what's going to happen next. You'll definitely feel for her and also makes you understand that this is what usually goes on in a politician's life. More or less anyway. Definitely a must read for Sidney Sheldon fans.
