Cold-blooded murder just isn’t Thomas Lang’s cup of tea. Offered a bundle to assassinate an American industrialist, he opts to warn the intended victim instead—a good deed that soon takes a bad turn. Quicker than he can down a shot of his favorite whiskey, Lang is bashing heads with a Buddha statue, matching wits with evil billionaires, and putting his life (among other things) in the hands of a bevy of femme fatales.

Up against rogue CIA agents, wannabe terrorists, and an arms dealer looking to make a high-tech killing, Lang’s out to save the leggy lady he has come to love . . . and prevent an international bloodbath to boot.

    " It amazes me that this book was written 14 years ago, well before FOX dreamed of Gregory House, yet the main character Lang is as much like House as even House is like House. If you make House an ex-military man caught in the middle of a "24" episode spliced with "Wag the Dog" vignettes, you'd have the screenplay for this book. Rather enjoyable, rather witty at times but the end was tied with a string too perfectly. The Bad Guys get it, the Good Guys win, the Lovers are reunited, the Scandal exposed and the Hero vindicated. All is well in Denmark. Which was, well, a trifle disappointing. "

    " I enjoyed this, easy to read, very funny with an engaging storyline. Even better, my internal narrator had Hugh Laurie's voice throughout the whole book :) "

    " Fast-paced and really clever storyline with witty dialogue. Hugh Laurie needs to write more! "

    " What a fun book this is. Reminded me of Gumshoe by Neville Smith which I read back in the '70s and which set me on the road to Raymond Chandler and all those wonderful mystery writers who write slyly funny books. Well done Mr Laurie. Wish you would write another. "
