Item description for We Are Holding the President Hostage by Warren Adler...

Aging Mafia Don Salvatore Padronelli is furious when fanatical Islamic terrorists capture his beloved daughter and grandson on a trip to Egypt. Fed up with ineffective diplomatic measures and a lack of governmental action, the Don and his loyal henchman cleverly insinuate themselves into the White House posing as waiters at a State dinner and take the President and his wife hostage. Now the Don calls the shots.

This classic confrontation between two men on utterly opposite sides of the law is laced with humor and illustrates how fierce paternal love can motivate even the most ruthless of gangsters into reckless acts of courage and bravery.

Reviews - What do customers think about We Are Holding the President Hostage?

The mafia takes on the terrorists in dated novel.  May 25, 2006
In Warren Adler's "We Are Holding the President Hostage", we see things are they were in the mid-80s: geopolitical games with the Soviet Union, the decline of the Mafioso, Lebanon a hotspot for terrorism(hostage taking). In Egypt, a terrorist trys to take a high ranking American official hostage, but the plan is botched and he kidnaps a bystanding American mother and her young child. Little did any know the chain of events that would set off, for the terrorist has the only daughter and grandchild of a powerful Don, who will stop at nothing to have her returned safely. The Don recruits a few loyal men to effect a bold plan: take the President hostage, and force him to go to the mattresses against the terrorists. Some interesting geopolitical manuevering is done, and very good climax. The cliches bring down the novel though, but it was interesting to see the Soviets save the day here.
