Publication: EP Dutton, 1979, New York
First edition. Fine in dust jacket with light wear to head of spine. The novel takes place in an election year, in a deeply polarized America. The presidential race matches a tall, lantern-jawed liberal against a far-right former businessman with deep ties to the energy industry. The principal threat to the country comes from Islamic terrorists who are almost impossible to track down, are led by an Arab prince made rich by oil, and are desperate to acquire nuclear bombs to use against Israel or major American cities.
