Summary:

When two of his American employees were held hostage in a heavily guarded prison fortress in Iran, one man took matters into his own hands: American businessman H. Ross Perot. His team consisted of a group of volunteers from the executive ranks of his corporation, hand-picked and trained by a retired Green Beret officer. To free the imprisoned Americans, they would face incalculable odds on a mission that only true heroes would have dared... "Superb...Ken Follett's fans may be reluctant to see him return to fiction." - The New York Times Book Review "A marvelous, rare, terrific read...as exciting as a novel." - USA Today

    An excellent, true story, well told. My only complaint is that the narration is much too fast. Numerous times I checked the speed setting, and found it at “1x” — although it sounded like at least 1.25x or even 1.5x. Still, I enjoyed the book and can recommend it.

  • Beth D.

    The the book held my interest. I really liked it because it was a true story and these heroes just said yes. Ross Perot is a very interesting man. His family must be very proud of him. He was very loyal to the people who worked for him. It is definitely worth listening to.

  • Jean

    I found this book full of suspense and it is a true story. It is the rescue of the EDS men from Iran. There were a few times I wanted them to hurry up and move the story along but overall the pace was good. The narrator did an excellent job. Was interested in the political side of the story with Kissinger and Carter. Picking up a newspaper today reveals little has changed in Iran. You will enjoy this book.
