The Terminators
Berkely Mather

An utterly ruthless international gang of ‘skyjackers’ kidnap KGB kingpin Palinovsky, based in Dehli, just as he is about to defect to the West and a bidding war ensues between British and American Intelligence who value the information he could provide, and the Russians who want to silence him.  A British agent sets up an exchange on the Nepalese border, which results in ambush and massacre, and then disappears.

Having escaped by the skin of his teeth, freelance agent Idwal Rees is sent to find the missing agent and, if necessary, terminate him. The trail leads into the wild hills of the disputed North-West frontier, country which Rees knows well and has very personal links to. And when those personal links seem threatened by the gang of kidnappers, Rees – and his trusted Pathan bodyguard Safaraz – take matters into their own very capable hands.

The Terminators was the second in a series of three novels by Berkely Mather to feature his unorthodox agent and ‘old India hand’ Idwal Rees, who first appeared in the international bestseller The Pass Beyond Kashmir, one of Ian Fleming’s favourite thrillers. More recently Randall Masteller, an acknowledged expert on spy fiction and creator of the website Spyguysandgals.com has said: “I think it was just flat-out impossible for Mr Mather to create a series that was not good.”

First published in 1971.
