Description

When a naked girl runs into the lights of Jack Nelson's jeep, the freelance pilot finds himself submerged in the most perilous treasure hunt ever. On his side are the girl, Claire Bouvier and his best buddy Harry Turk, a tough fighter still scarred by the nightmare of Vietnam.

Waiting for them in the trackless wastes of the Khufra marshes are the ruthless Colonel Taleb of the local security police and his murderous Husa Horseman.

Only time will tell who will survive in the deadliest adventure of all.

Reader reviews

  • (2/5)
    A tried and somewhat over-used story of a broken military veteran who finds himself once again battling old demons both real and psychological. The story is held together with just enough twists and turns to keep it interesting to the end.
  • (4/5)
    Jack Nelson is a freelance pilot with the horrors of the Vietnam War in his not too distant past. One night when he is driving home a naked girl runs out in the front of his headlights being chased by a group of young men. She turns out to be Sister Bouvier and enlists Nelson and his best friend Turk’s help in recovering an airplane loaded with treasure from the deadly Khufra marshes.What unfolds is a tale of deceit, death and hardship.Higgins is in familiar territory with this novel and it has a striking similarity to ‘A sad wind from the sea’ an earlier book written under the pseudonym of Harry Patterson. A quick and enjoyable read, with more than one unexpected twist.
