About This Book
Touted as a blockbuster, this assured debut thriller delivers in full--and then
some. A young American doctor haunted by his father's murder stumbles into a
chilling international conspiracy and crosses paths with, among others, a weary
L.A. cop investigating a series of surgically precise decapitations, a naive
physical therapist and a hypercompetent German assassin. Dr. Paul Osborn,
visiting Paris, recognizes the man whom he witnessed stab his father on a Boston
street in 1966. Determined to learn the reason for his father's unsolved death
and take revenge, Osborn hatches a plan that unexpectedly leads to the gruesome
execution of a hired PI and to other killings. Clearly some serious powers are
involved. Soon Osborn, aided by Vera Monneray, a Paris medical student, is
hiding out from Paris police, Interpol and the L.A. cop who has been summoned to
Paris. Meanwhile, Joanna Marsh accompanies Elton Lybarger, a Swiss national whom
she has helped recover from a stroke in a posh New Mexico sanatorium, back to
Zurich, where he is greeted rapturously by high-ranking German business leaders.
As an extensive Nazi resurgence plot emerges, Folsom adds extra flashes--Joanna
in a drug-induced sex marathon, a massive train wreck, Vera's other affair with
a very important French leader--to heighten the suspense on these rapidly
turning pages. A huge explosion in secret chambers under the streets of Berlin
sends Osborn on a final chase through Europe and up into the Alps, where the
high-tech hopes of an earlier generation are finally exposed. This is a
one-sitting novel and readers will have to choose: a full, sun-burning day at
the beach or, for those who can't wait, a springtime all-nighter. 300,000 first
printing; BOMC selection; movie rights to MGM and the Zanuck Co.
