A thriller to rescue a kidnapped Kuwait Princess
A Kuwaiti Princess is abducted. The kidnappers first demand is total secrecy. The second demand is political, and cannot be met. The vast wealth of the Emir of Kuwait is of no use. They must somehow rescue the Princess. The U.S. government cannot be involved, so a private team is assembled; two retired U.S. Army Colonels, an ex-FBI agent, an ex-U.S. Marine Captain, a retired Mossad agent, an Israeli journalist, and a young Kuwaiti living in New York. The team tracks the kidnappers to Marseilles, France, and then to Damascus Syria. The Syrian government refuses to help and escaping from Syria is almost impossible. The brutal Hamas agents are everywhere. During the chaotic travel, the Princess and the young Kuwaiti are falling in love. Just when they thought the mission was accomplished, they learn that the mastermind of the kidnapping has fled to New York. He was responsible for several deaths and must be captured and punished. In Brooklyn, New York, with help from the Russian Mafia they pursue the kidnapper.
