Excellent book. The book arrived earlier than the expected delivery date.
MEGA FREEDY
Jules Beaurain used to wok for the Belgian police but since he was caught in a crossfire during a hijack at Athens airport, during which his wife was killed, he set up his own anti-terrorist unit called Telescope. Unfortunately since then he became the Stockholm Syndicate's target. One night Henderson and Beaurain together with 20 armed men were watching suspicious movements in a building in the rue des Bouchers when suddenly an assassin appeared out of nowhere with his Luger pointing at Beaurain. The latter could shoot at him with a gas pistol and then Henderson and his men neutralised him and took him away in their van.

But then a series of questions had to be posed. Why did the Syndicate send a Russian called Serge Litov to do the killing? Was the dark-haired woman Beaurain had spotted in the window of the Auberge des Roses next to the scene of the shooting a watcher safely placed there by the Syndicate? Knowing that Beaurain had escaped the killing, what would the Syndicate's next step be? And how would Telescope counter their next attack? Or could it be that the Syndicate's plan was not to kill Beaurain but, far worse, to have Litov infiltrate Telescope and locate its main base at Ch√Ęteau Wardin...?

And a Colin Forbes novel which does not feature Tweed and co., like his other entertaining books in that series. Jules Beaurain is the leader of TELESCOPE, an unofficial anti-terrorist squad which is illegal but tolerated - they have overpowered everyone from bank robbers to nuclear terrorists! But they may be facing their most deadly enemy - the SYNDICATE of the book's title, who are spreading their influence into the highest reaches of power, including the White House, by using one Litov, a top Soviet agent. As both sides outwit each other across Europe, the net closes in . . . This novel, despite being written in 1982, is still a thrilling adventure even today. The action never stops after a bit of a false start, and Colin Forbes demonstrates that he visits the locations featured by describing them so well. Denmark and Belgium are countries I have visited and could relate to those parts in particular. One of his best reads.

Raymond Harold Sawkins, an English novelist, was born in 1923. He wrote over 40 books, mostly as Colin Forbes - only three were published under is own name. He was best known for his recurring character Tweed, the Deputy Director of the Secret Intelligence Service. However, "The Stockholm Syndicate" - which was first published in 1981 - is one of his standalone novels. Sawkins died in 2006.

Jules Beaurain had once been a Chief Inspector in the Belgian police force, where he'd headed the anti-terrorist division. However, a year after his appontment, his wife was killed during a terrorist-inspired hijack in Athens airport. He promptly resigned his post and founded Telescope - an unofficial anti-terrorist organisation, but one that's extremely well-funded and highly effective. All of Telescope's agents have been hand-picked, all having suffered a similar loss to Beaurain himself. Jules - for purely professional reasons, obviously - works particularly closely with Louise Hamilton.

The book opens with Beaurain strolling through the grand Place in Brussels, expecting an attempt on his life. Unsurprisingly, the attempt on Beaurain's life fails...but only because Telescope's arch-enemies, the Syndicate, WANT it to fail. (While it's only a matter of time before the Syndicate makes a real move on Beaurain, for now they actually want their assassin - a Russian called Litov - to infiltrate Telescope. His mission is to find out where Telescope's headquarters are, allowing for a decisive attack on their mortal enemies). The Syndicate apparently has three leaders - Dr Otto Berlin, Dr Benny Horn and Dr Theodor Norling - though, ultimately, the trio report to the Kremlin. (Sonia Karnell appears to be the Syndicate's version of Louise Hamilton - she's with Berlin when he makes his first appearance, and she's never too far from the significant action). The organisation raises its funds through extortion and blackmail, and has an extensive list of the west's rich and influential people in its back pocket. As a result, a single code-word can make Beaurain's life very difficult. Both organisations are, obviously, very keen on the other's destruction...and, with Syndicate planning a major meeting, Telescope are aiming for a result within a fortnight.

I enjoyed "The Stockholm Syndicate" a great deal - though not for the reasons Forbes would have hoped. I actually feel a bit guilty for laughing so much...It's so old fashioned and over-the-top, it read more like a parody than a genuine thriller. Beaurain wears slacks, people seem to believe that a computer can find anything out and Europe apparently has "gangsters". (I thought they lived in 1920s Chicago ?) Like something out of Austin Powers, Otto Berlin at one point "used the fingers of one hand to stroke the curved ends of his moustache". Louise Hamilton, meanwhile, "had been a crack racing driver at Brands Hatch in England" who, during the course of the book, "felt besmirched by such vile obscenity" and found time to ask Beaurain "Will it be a savage encounter ?" Meanwhile, another Telescope agent comes up with a line guaranteed to generate nudges and sniggers : "You think I get a chance to use my weapon ?" An easy, diverting read - but not a book I could really take seriously.
