"Pomegranate. For British spymaster David Jardine, the mention of his beautiful Lebanese double agent's code name conjures up a wealth of memories: days . . . and nights with her . . . priceless information about Arab terrorist groups. Now, from the Middle East, Pomegranate has sent a distress signal. Jardine willingly abandons a dreary Washington D.C. conference to race to Beirut - straight into an ambush by the Mossad, who reveal that Pomegranate, aka Alisha Abdul-Fetteh, is their agent.
"Jarding learns from the Mossad that their ex-agent Danny Davidov, expelled in disgrace for embezzlement, has retaliated with dazzling computer frauds and counterfeit schemes all over the world. Now Davidov and his elusive cohort are going after the jackpot: the U.S. Treasury. Although being kidnapped does not normally charm Jardine, he is tantalized by the Mossad's brazen, desperate plea for help in catching Davidov. Mindful that the whole tale could be a trap he decides nevertheless to trust his instincts and chase down Davidov's partner.
"From Moscow . . . to a war room in New York, Jardine tries to outmaneuver Davidov and Kolosov in a breathtaking game of winner-take-all. "; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
