"A gripping international thriller" about a Foreign Service officer--and the son who turns to terrorism to spite him ( Los Angeles Times ).

William North Jr. inherited his father's keen political instincts and passion for justice. But the last time Ambassador North saw his son he seemed like a stranger--and a hostile one at that. Now, just as North prepares to take a new post in Germany, reports emerge that Bill Jr. is aligned with a German terrorist organization.

Suddenly, a private conflict between father and son escalates to a matter of national security. North is faced with a terrifying dilemma as loyalty to family and country are directly at odds.

The American Ambassador is at once a riveting tale of suspense and a thoughtful meditation on the fragility of Western values in an age of terrorism.

"To make out the jagged intersections of ambition and greed, idealism and sell-out in contemporary politics, you need only turn to . . . The American Ambassador ."
