Al Rosen was doing just fine, hiding out in Israeluntil he decided to play Good Samaritan and rescue some elderly tourists from a hotel fire. Now his picture's been carried in the stateside press, and the guys he's been hiding from know exactly where he is. And they're coming to get himcrooked lawyers, men with guns and money, and assorted members of the Detroit mob who are harboring a serious grudge. Playtime is officially over. Rosen's a million miles from home with a bull's-eye on his back, and his only ally is a U.S. embassy marine who's been looking for a war . . . and who's damn well found one.
