As a radical Christian Lebanese militia plans an act of terrorism,Colin Gordon, a CIA case officer under diplomatic cover is stationed at the American Embassy in Germany. His job is to recruit and handle foreign agents who have access to and will provide prized foreign intelligence to meet US national security requirements. When he receives a postcard from Ganymede, his agent in Beirut, everything around him begins to change.
As the Christian militia launches a series of attacks against United States interests that reach far beyond the mayhem of war-torn Lebanon, Gordon's dangerous journey to the truth leads him through the streets of Beirut and Athens, to a terrorist training camp in North Africa, and finally to New York and Washington, where the Secretary of State faces a perilous fight for his life.
Kirkus Review commented on Ganymede: An exemplary story that takes readers on a stroll around the world, made all the better by taut dialogue and expressive characters.
