GUNSHIP

The hero of Savarin's Lynx (1986) returns to do battle with the latest in Soviet helicopters, teaming up once again with the delectable agent Logan. Having survived a series of wild adventures in the Orient, David Pross would like to stay at home in Cardiff with the wife and kids and his ever healthier helicopter-charter business. But H.M. Government, who have been sending Pross all of his juicy new contracts, have other ideas. They are most concerned about a wicked new Russian aircraft, and, in their opinion, Pross is just the man to see that the Soviet killer helicopter project falls flat on its face--discrediting its brilliant inventor and ceasing to threaten the tranquility of the western world. To that end, special agent Logan temporarily sheds her undercover identity as a pacifist debutante and comes to Cardiff, where she leans heavily on Pross. The happily married Pross, whose intense admiration for Logan is strictly professional, caves in to pressure and agrees to a shootout with the handsome, smooth-talking, Soviet helicopter strategist Colonel Aleksandr Anakov. While Pross trains for the fight in Switzerland, Anakov comes looking for him in the U.K., where he is pleasantly distracted by agent Logan. Everything comes to a head in (of all places) Nepal. Dashing, up-to-date, gentlemanly adventure with just the right amount of decorous, unconsummated sex.
