As leader of Sextant, an antiterrorist organization, Jack Mercier, heads a team trying to bring down Ahmed Chari, who is developing a deadly virus to sell to the highest bidder. Dr. Solange Micheau becomes involved when she takes her father's place at the French prison where Chari's son is being held. Lyn Stone's Against the Wall (2) is an adventure story with a hint of the paranormal that's weakened by stilted dialogue and a lack of chemistry between the hero and heroine. In addition, Chari's motivation is so improbable it is unintentionally humorous.
