The sixth book in James Clavell s epic Asian Saga tells the story of three weeks in Tehran in February 1979--three weeks of passion, self-sacrifice, and heartbreak.

When the shah is thrown out of Iran, the nation s turmoil becomes world headlines. Caught in this shifting world of fanaticism, ambition, duplicity, and violent death are the foreign helicopter pilots who have been servicing the oil fields up and down the country. Their one objective is to make a bold, concerted escape to safety across the Gulf."
