Alan Llewellyn, high school classmate of President James Kehoe, resigned from his high school teaching job a year ago to head up a sub-rosa truth-checking shop for his old classmate. His task: to eyeball and review Intelligence Community products that hit President Kehoe’s desk. In checking a paper on Arab extremists in Europe, Alan has the temerity to add a footnote--based on sparse but serious collected info—-suggesting that a major terrorist plot against the United States is brewing in Europe. This grabs the immediate attention of the President and results in Alan being sent to Hamburg, Germany. There, he picks up several crucial clues, including a violent confrontation in his hotel, which suggests that the terrorists are on to him. Returning to Virginia, he and his crowd start to amass the indicators that a small cabal of Arab terrorists is indeed coming to the U.S. via Cuba bent on doing serious harm.
In Havana, a Yemeni military attaché is clandestinely facilitating the plot against America by procuring illegal explosives from a Cuban military source and arranging transport for the terrorists from Cuba to the Florida Keys. A beautiful Italian double agent uses her talents to bring some elements of this plot to light.
By means both fair and foul, Alan and his troops are able to track the terrorists as they descend on their targets in the D. C. area, culminating in a violent and personal confrontation. This is Allan Llewellyn at his gut-wrenching and exciting best!
