This book is a great read from start to finish. It takes place during the Iranian revolution and gives you a good understanding of the upheaval taking place. A British helicopter company providing service to the oil fields needs to get its employees to safety. The planning and the escape will keep you reading and you will find it hard to put down. The characters are very well defined and you will feel very concerned about their welfare. I really enjoyed this book.
