By Peter Kenney on March 8, 2001
Format: Hardcover
Colonel Hugh North of G-2 is briefed in Florida by Dr. Maury Plack about a new weapon under development in Russia. The new military hardware uses a lightning ball as an innovative way to harness hydrogen energy. The weapon is far from being perfected but the Russians do plan to use it soon to destroy oil derricks and refineries in the vicinity of Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela. The Russians also hope to topple that country's shaky democratic regime in favor of a communist dictatorship.
North is given a mission by General R.D. Armiston, Chief of G-2, General Staff Corps, to locate the weapon and destroy it within ten days. He begins his work at the Hotel Fountainbleu in Miami Beach where he picks up the trail of two Russian agents on the way to Lake Maracaibo. North's contact person in Venezuela will be an Irish-Venezuelan named McJuan Kelley.
In this novel the author produces a fast-paced spy story reminiscent of the James Bond books of the same era. North is equipped with the latest gadgets and as usual is distracted by more than one beautiful woman.
