They were forced to meet by the rivers of Babylon... In Israel, two Concorde jets take off for a UN conference that will finally bring peace to the Middle East.

Here, with only a handful of weapons, the men and women of the peace mission must make a desperate stand against an army of crack Palestinian commandos - while the Israeli authorities desperately attempt a rescue bid. A story of compulsive excitement, rich in personal drama and political tension that must rank as one of the greatest of our times.Finally, he broke the silence and asked what was the procedure. ... They lit cigarette lighters and aimed the pistols, then extinguished the lighters and began squeezing on the triggers. ... The other young man lit his lighter again to fix his aim.
