The Assassin: Phoenix, code name for the best professional killer on the earth - a murderer as cold as the bullet that would stop the heart of the world. The Conspirators: Shadowy figures in the highest circles of Mideastern power, out to sabotage the Arab-Israeli peace treaty. The Contract: Three million dollars to kill Moshe Dayan, one of the world's most heavily guarded men. But the most brilliant intelligence agents of France, Israel, Egypt and the United States knew only one thing for sure. Time was running out for all of them as this artist of assassination moved along the trail of blood and money from Libya to Paris to the ultimate moment of monstrous violence in New York. And no one could be trusted.
