Publisher's Summary

A tense and nerve-shattering classic from the highly acclaimed master of action and suspense.
A rolling for Knox is how the journalists describe the Presidential motorcade as it enters San Francisco across the Golden Gate. Even the ever-watchful FBI believe it is impregnable - as it has to be with the President and two Arab potentates aboard.
But halfway across the bridge the unthinkable happens. Before the eyes of the world a master criminal pulls off the most spectacular kidnapping in modern times....

Fabulous adventure story from the master!

A tense, gripping and fun adventure story. The narrator does a great job with the voices and characters.

Next...

Alistair Maclean, nothing else really needs saying. I grew up reading these as my introduction to spy/thriller/mystery and having them begin to be Audibled is just cause for a happy dance. The narration was easy to listen to and thus, enjoyable. Now to keep my eye out for which other they will do... hoping to see The Golden Rendezvous, and Way to a Dusty Death...
Anyway, more credits, and cash, will be exchanged for more Mavcean's.
