Whirlpool Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Whirlpool

A huge banking concern called INCUBUS is developing its influence into Eastern bloc nations, including Russia. When it is learned that this concern may be using rather unconventional methods of intrusion, for instance terrorism and blackmail, Britain's best SIS agents Tweed, Paula Grey and Bob Newman are sent to investigate. Great, well-described Scandinavian locales and an original story idea make this thriller well worth reading.
