Ex-British spy John Smith is nearly broke, has bad teeth, is lousy in bed, and drinks too much. But he’s no fool. He’s a man who knows his own limitations and works within them. He blackmailed his way out of the secret service years ago and is barely making a living as a London private eye when his ex-wife comes calling and asks him to follow her philandering husband. But that sleazy, all-too-common job leads to some uncommon trouble…and Smith is thrown like a chunk of raw meat into a lion’s den of international espionage, betrayal, and killing. His only hope of surviving is to outwit his clever and brutal adversaries at their own deadly game.
