I had not come across this author before, so I was intrigued when a friend who has put me onto other good reads suggested this one. His advice was excellent and I expect that I will now have to go back and read some of Pottinger's other efforts as well.

This novel has most of the ingredients for a good pot boiler,i.e., big oil, big money, scheming, sex, intrigue, ironic twists, sex (did I already mention that?) and revenge. Lots of revenge.

The characters live Texas large and the story rolls along at a fasten your seatbelt pace, all of which makes for a fine winter read if you are watching the snow pile up outside your windows or a good beach read if you have had the good sense to spend some time in a warmer climate.

This one is fun.

When he took over, Sadat went fooling with Begin, but Nasser (the Boss) agreed, with both discretion and valor, to compensate for Egypt's 1967 defeat and the three `nays' of Khartoum imbibed the consciousness of the Arabs to get over their apparent deficiencies.

Nasser believed that superficial knowledge acquired in the battlefield should be strengthened by practical experience and his lieutenants improved their training and fighting spirit. Indolence and pleasure loving changed to more serious cunning and cleverness.

Greater only than Nasser's aversion to Arabs reactionaries, was his aversion to Israel's intransigence.

Nasser was optimist. He had strong personality and was extravagantly feted as much for his magnificent presence that seemed a reassuring symbol of his ability to talk and convince.

When the West refused him permission to build the High Dam, etiquette gave way to that natural quality in Distinguished Leaders whose expression so often succeed to endear them to others.

In his early forties Nasser was tall and heavily built, broad shouldered with high head and ingratiating smile. His expression was good-humored but uncompromising. Nasser was also resourceful, and rapid judgment and quick thinking, speaking more from reason than from instinct.

Actually, after 1967 six days war, something in him broke and he was never the same thereafter.

His health deteriorated.

But never had he any tendencies to bad temper and impolite language and whose easy faculty for making friends had flourished during 1969 Black September but lost him his health.

He regarded Yasser Arafat with the little scorn and mixed justice.

Nasser was more conscious of Arafat's fault of character than of King Hussein's virtues of clairvoyance, yet Nasser couldn't do without Arafat; ever since Arafat and Hussein were meeting with Nasser, they felt an almost religious faith in him. There existed between the three leaders and the public the same mystic union that was to develop between the people of the Arab World.

Nasser's personality was to penetrate into the soul of every Arab.

The Boss never cracked under the uncertainties and emotions. Nasser was never tormented by indecisiveness whenever a decision was required.

At 52, he gave the impression of physical frailty, but unlike many responsible officials, Nasser detested being a poseur, fond of striking attitudes.

Whether liked or not is really immaterial. Nasser will remain a flaming personality full of humanitarian ideals that were then believed to erase restricted national lines. He prefaced his work with dedication.

Perhaps his fault was one that he was not trained to combine his outstanding energy and intelligence with a political flexibility
