THE MORDIDA MAN - Ross Thomas
Another slice of thriller genius from the best.
Chubb Dunjee, ex-politician is employed to recover the brother of the U S President from terrorists, who may be U S citizens and then there are the Lybian terrorists who are aggrieved over the death of their star terrorist.
Usual fantastic story, some of the best names ever given to characters in a book, Bingo McKay, Thane Coombs and Dunjee (The Mordida Man, the bribe man).
Its too amazing to summarize, but again this book is out of print so its hard to get but its well worth the effort. One of Thomas's best. (Published 1981)
