About the Author- "As a prize-winning novelist, Taylor has earned an international reputation because of his iconoclastic passion for unmasking unfair or deceptive practices. He has written 21 books about military life, governmental service, the jet set, gourmet dining, and life in some of the few remaining outposts for adventure left in the world. And he has actually lived through a number of experiences which tend to rival his books in excitement, suspense, intrigue and danger."
