Meanwhile, the nuclear countdown continues...
This excellent, thoughtful and darkly comic page-turner is set in the decade before the end of the Cold War, and focuses on the twelve days leading up to a potential Armageddon.
Will the schoolgirl be found and PK exonerated? Can Frank escape the terrorist’s revenge? And, ultimately, what is the distraction that causes a US pilot to hesitate in his defence of the UK?
