"In The Kill Box, Air Force Captain Charlie McKay is chosen to lead one of the most desperate military missions ever: destruction of the biological weapons laboratory hidden deep beneath the Iraqi desert bands. Air Force One, returning from Kuwait, has crashed. All aboard, including the vice-president and former President, are dead, killed not by the crash but by a virus of unknown origin. The threat is immediate, blunt, and terrifying.

"The President vows retaliation, not knowing that Washington D.C., is also targeted for biological destruction. As the clock ticks down to biological Armageddon, all personnel at the giant Air Force Base in Saudi Arabia fall to the deadly virus. And as Captain Charlie McKay leads his strike force of F-15s and B-1 Bombers into the heart of Iraq on a one-in-a-million mission, the fate of the world is hanging in the balance."

Mrs. Pollifax, Innocent Tourist

By Dorothy Gilman

Go to catalog
"[Matronly martial artist and spy Mrs. Pollifax] ... is on loan to her retired CIA friend Farrell. Her bag lady act is the first phase of a mission to the Middle East: to smuggle out of Jordan the final manuscript of the dissident Iraqi novelist, Dib Assen, recently murdered in an Iraqi prison. Allegedly fiction, the script encodes the shocking truth of Saddam Hussein's reign.

"Allah willing, Farrell is to rendezvous near Amman with a man called Ibrahim, who will deliver the manuscript. All Mrs. P. has to do is look as much like a tourist as possible to deflect suspicion from her "cousin," Farrell.

"But hardly are the two airborne when the coils of Middle Eastern intrigue begin to unwind. Mrs. Pollifax's seatmate is not the affable Arab businessman he seems and the little carved plaque he secretly stashes in her carry-on bag is not a mere souvenir. It is not imagination that persuades Mrs. P. that wherever they go she and Farrell are followed, even to the old castle where Farrell is to meet the mysteriously elusive Ibrahim."
