Athens, Greece. As a Boeing 737 noses into its
gate, its crew is suddenly confronted by Greek officials waiting to arrest one
of its passengers, a beloved ex-president of the United States, John Harris.
Believing Harris’ life is in danger, Captain Craig Dayton stages a daring
escape by backing the jet away from the gate without clearance and taking off
down a vacant runway.
The dilemma for Captain Dayton and his precious
cargo is that Peru has signed an Interpol Warrant for President Harris’ arrest,
using the same treaty employed by Spain to extradite former Chilean dictator
Pinochet. The Peruvian government alleges that Harris is personally responsible
for a supposed CIA-led strike against a biological weapons factory during his
term of office. But Harris’ and the US State Department’s nightmare is this:
There is no place to hide because every nation in the Pan-American federation
has signed the treaty and any one of them must honor the warrant and give Peru
what it wants: a presidential pawn to humiliate on the international stage.
Captain Dayton flies Harris and his crew on an
against-the-clock mission to find a safe haven-from Greece to Sicily to Ireland,
while Harris’ rumpled and outgunned lawyer wrestles an international team of
legal sharks snapping at their biggest prize yet.
