Written in 1973 it could be today with Jihad Moslem bad guys spouting the same old same old rule the world I was not aware of this in \"73 since the media then was not into stirring up trouble. Ms P\'s sleuthing is not trivial nor is the danger in these stories Such stories really catch your listening ear!

Even though this was received this out of order, I, once again, love the book. What a great author, fascinating how topical subjects are decades later. I especially enjoy the geographical descriptions, oh how I want to visit Switzerland, sounds beautiful!
