In the tradition of Robert Ludlum, with a witty twist, Thomsonís second
novel featuring a former spy and his son once again poses the question:
What happens when a former CIA agent can no longer trust his own mind?
Razor-sharp writing, laugh-out-loud humor, and a sturdy plot combine to
make Thomson's sequel to Once a Spy a real treat for thriller fans tired
of more of the same old same old. Charlie Clark has left his life as an
inveterate gambler far behind as he and girlfriend Alice go on the lam
in Switzerland from Alice's employer, the NSA, and a special CIA black
ops unit known as Cavalry. The real star of the group is Charlie's
father, Drummond Clark, who after a career as a CIA agent is sinking
into the throes of early Alzheimer's, but who's able, when the occasion
demands, to revive his old skills and save their skins. The nonstop action and quirky, engaging characters will
leave readers eager for the next installment, and the next, and the next.
