|The Tango Briefing|
Quiller, the super-agent from London's top-secret Bureau, is back in a new adventure that tests his professional cool to the limit. Control summons him "most urgent" from Tokyo and sends him into the Sahara, searching for a small cargo plane - call letters "Tango Victor" - that crashed in a sandstorm.
How it starts...
Chapter 1 - Birdseye
I came in over the pole and we were stacked up for nearly twenty minutes in a holding circuit round London before they could find us a runway and then we had to wait for a bottleneck on the ground to get itself sorted out and all we could do was stare through the windows at the downpour and that didn't help.
