This suspense thriller is set in Athens Greece just before the start of the 2004 Olympics. A Greek terrorist organization plans to overthrow government and return Greece to the status quo of 30 years ago. When British and American diplomats are assassinated, CIA veteran Bob Danforth is sent to Athens to find and stop the terrorists. The Greek government is apparently powerless to stop the terrorism, likely due to infiltration. The Greek terror cell has contacts with terrorist organizations around the world, and as the Olympics approach, they put many plans into action. The story has many subplots, and it takes more than half the book to provide the necessary background, which makes it fairly easy to put down. Once the action is underway, the book's structure and pacing mimics a Tom Clancy thriller.
