Col. North of G-2 is with us once again in an intricately cast tale of espionage and counter-espionage in the unstable territory of southeast Asia. He is instructed in two things -- he must recover a valuable box concealed in the nose cone of a fallen satellite in the Burmese jungles and he must not upset the balance of international relations in Burma. His job is complicated by a series of disasters, not the least of which is the unwanted company of three women. Some sex and lots of action -- pretty bloody and callous, before he achieves success at a high cost. Followers of Colonel North will not be disappointed.
