Whirlwind by James Clavell
From the author of Shogun and Noble House.

James Clavell’s Whirlwind

Tehran, February 1979. The Shah has fled, and a group of Western pilots are caught in the following eruption of political and religious fanaticism in which fundamentalist mullah and leftist mujaheddin, loyalists and revolutionaries, are locked in a bloody power struggle.

Trying to keep their feet in the turmoil and their machines flying are S-G Helicopters, the Aberdeen-based company connected with Struan’s of Hong Kong, which services oil fields the length and breadth of Iran, from the Russian border to the Islamic Gulf. Andrew Gavallan and Duncan McIver, both of Noble HHouse, are the men in charge of an international team of highly experienced specialist pilots. Robert Armstrong, Special Branch, and Gregor Suslev, KGB, are also old adversaries from the previous novel.

Whirlwind covers three weeks of world headlines - three weeks of violence, duplicity, fanaticism, passion, self-sacrifice and heartbreak, involving feudal khans, party apparatchiks, Tehran bazaaris and militant mullah, with behind them the CIA, MI6 and KGGB in mutually destructive combat, while caught between them all is this team of professional pilots trying to keep doing a high-risk job and, for two of them, moments of irrevocable choice in their marriages to Iranian wives they love beyond politics, beyond safety.

Out of this world of chaos James Clavell devises his own whirlwind as thee superbly exciting climax to his fifth Asian saga. Whirlwind is as powerful as it is panoramic and a magnificent successor to King Rat, Tai-Pan, Shogun and Noble House.
