Wait Until The Dark Of Night
Cover in category: 'Fiction' > 'Action & Adventure'
His worst enemy, a Member of Parliament, asks for his help to rescue her son, who was kidnapped by an African warlord while doing mission work in Uganda. Cross sees this as an opportunity to get her and the police off his back and agrees to help. He makes use of his criminal contacts in Switzerland, Amsterdam, and Tenerife and hires a French mercenary group to back up his plans. He then travels deep into Africa, risking death and imprisonment again and again, never knowing whether he or the young man will ever get out alive.
And, despite his criminal reputation, Cross maintains he is willing to put his life at risk because ‘It is the right thing to do.’ The character is what Lee likes to describe as the “good bad guy.”
