And like those movies, the books a wonderful ride, particularly if you dont ask too many questions after you climb aboard. The characters are strictly Central Casting: a gallant war-hero president twitted by terrorists, a craggy old pro called out of retirement, an I.R.A. scoundrel with a heart of ... well, brass at least. The daughter of the title is a comely French countess (of course), whos kidnapped by a nefarious group of Israeli extremists. In return for her safety, they want Dad to nuke several Arab countries. Will he be forced to push the button, or will a trio of agents be able to reach her in time? Typical of the genre, the books pull is the intelligence of the villains multiplied by the ingenuity of the heroes. The Presidents Daughter scores highly on both and readers itching for a globe-trotting game of cat-and-rat wont be disappointed.
