It is the late 1960s and General de Gaulle has cancelled Israel's order for fifty Mirage 5 jet fighters – a stunning body blow for the Israeli Air Force, depleted by SAM missiles after the Six-Day war. Now de Gaulle springs another surprise, embargoing the five missile-carrying high-speed aircraft under construction for the Israeli navy. Against this background, Daniel Kalen, an Israeli fighter pilot grounded after injury, has been given an extraordinary mission by Mossad: to steal the Mirage blueprints – all 250,000 of them – so that Israel can build her own version of the fighter. So begins a joint operation of breathtaking audacity – the theft of the plans, hand in hand with the hijacking of the high-speed craft. Kalen, aided by American research student Raquel Gibbons, has more adversaries than he knows: not only the French but also the shady aircraft dealer Lucky Nathan, who has much to lose should the synchronised espionage missions succeed.
