Nobody escapes the past--and Boysie Oakes knows all too well that he is no exception.
So when the wily Moslyn, his former boss in the Department employs him once again, it is with sinking heart and fluttering stomach that Boysie is forced to return to the fray. The fray being in this case, S.E.A.T.; Special Executive for Anti-Terrorism. Then before long Boysie discovers that in fact it involves a previous operation in Mexico City, where Boysie played his old role as reluctant liquidator for Special Security. The other members of that operation have all recently been murdered; Boysie is being put out as a lure.
But then Boysie himself is suspected. And with his only ally, the delectable but equally vulnerable Zizi, he finds himself hunted across France, on the run from his own organization, from the French police--and from a gang of ruthless murderers.
