Rescue My Child: The Story of the Ex-Delta Commandos Who Bring Home Children Abducted Overseas

Neil C. Livingstone, Author Simon & Schuster $21.5 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-76934-5
This account of four rescues of American children from foreign lands is more gripping than many fictional thrillers. Delta Force is an Army commando unit familiar with all sorts of clean and dirty fighting tactics; Corporate Training Unlimited (CTU) is a private company composed of veterans of this group, a firm that undertakes missions which may not fall strictly within the limits of other countries' laws. Livingstone (The War Against Terrorism) details three cases of the children of American mothers and Muslim fathers saved from abduction to Tunisia, Jordan and Bangladesh, and one case of the offspring of American parents spirited to South America; these expeditions, we are shown, took place amid much cloak-and-dagger maneuvering and high adventure. Although CTU claims to have lost money on almost all of these rescues, its members interviewed here never attempt to present themselves as altruistic idealists. Photos not seen by PW. TV movie rights to NBC; author tour. (Oct.)
