Summary (From the publisher):

14 days to an assassination
14 days to overthrow the French government
14 days to catch the "Leopard"

Ominous signs surround the popular French president's upcoming trip to a Moscow summit conference - a young woman's assassination attempt, dark talk of conspiracy from an exiled colonel, heavy Soviet fleet movement in the Mediterranean.

The Parisian police chief, Marc Grelle, uncovers frightening evidence that a top-ranking government official will attempt to seize power in the president's absence. Clues point to a shadowy hero of the French resistance during World War II, code-named 'The Leopard' - but the Leopard has been dead for years. Or has he?

As Grelle tries desperately to defuse the plot without alerting the unknown agent, a deadly team of Soviet assassins receives its orders: eliminate the three men who can identify the Leopard. Swiftly moving events seem to outpace the efforts of clandestine agents -- until the astonishing climax.

With consummate control of taut suspense that characterised his previous bestsellers, Colin Forbes threads his way through a world of counterespionage, ruthless murder, high-level treason, and heart-stopping action.
