A hapless Brit unknowingly becomes an international arms dealer in this rollicking, wildly funny adventure.
The long-lost fourth book in Jimmy Sangster's "James Reed" series. Reed is trapped in a nightmare of sex, blackmail and murder... to get out, he must go to New York...and worm his way into the rotton core of the Big Apple.
Ex-British spy John Smith agrees to follow his ex-wife’s cheating husband… and finds himself back in a world of betrayal and espionage.
James Reed is falsely accused of rape, chased by killers, and hired by a billionaire being blackmailed into marriage. And that's only the beginning of Reed's troubles in the second book in the series.
Excellently plotted and paced, this adventure offers the satisfaction of a hard-boiled L.A. detective story overlaid with the nuances of a British mystery. Sangster constructs an intricate problem and lets his intelligent, complex hero loose to solve it.
More action-thriller than mystery, the action, from hand-to-hand combat to nautical chases, is steady.
