Description: Passion. Wealth. Power. Since boyhood these had been James Courtney's idols. He had always indulged his insatiable, twisted drives to the hilt. His fortune, a legacy of the WWII death camps, had grown to fabulous heights. His power rested on astonishing success of Courtney Ventures International and his worldwide network of grateful ex-Nazis, the murderous Foster-brothers. Now a priceless seventeenth century Spanish masterpiece holds the final key to Courtney's ultimate plan for global domination. But first, he must destroy his only rival, Lebanese millionaire el Muein. When he enlists the help of rogue American yachtman Neil Harkness, lover of Courtney's beautiful personal assistant Sybil, the lethal fuse to a climactic explosion of nerve wrenching violence and massive slaughter is well and truly lit.
