In London, the massive truck bomb that levels Whitehall is the signal to commence hostilities across Europe. Trapped by the unfolding mayhem, Prime Minister Harry Beecham must escape the city before it falls, his destination a secret government complex buried deep beneath the West Country hills.
When a car bomb blows Gary Rizzo to pieces, very few people shed a tear. But, of the many the flamboyant real estate developer has ripped off, three stand out from the rest. First is Gary’s beautiful, almost-ex trophy wife, Janet, who stands to lose millions once the papers are signed. Next is German multi-millionaire, George Schuman, a man who very few people are stupid enough to rip off in the first place. Then there’s Dwight Stanton. As Gary’s silent business partner, he takes his friend’s deception the hardest.
