The Devil's Alternative

Author: Frederick Forsyth Format: Paperback Release Date: 07/04/2011

'Whichever option I choose, men are going to die.' When the entire Soviet Union wheat crop is destroyed by a devastating string of failures, the population faces starvation. The USA is quick to offer assistance. They devise a plan to trade vital food resources with the Russians in exchange for sensitive political information. But the Politburo has other ideas: the invasion of Western Europe to commandeer the food for themselves... As the paths of communication breakdown, the American president and leaders from around the world face an appalling choice: should they allow the loss of thousands to save the lives of many more? This is the Devil's Alternative, and in this incomparable and gripping thriller the Cold War giants must fight a battle to the death.
