The Gun Seller

by Hugh Laurie - £9.99  Arrow Books Ltd (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099469391 | ISBN 10: 0099469391

Thomas Lang is a James Bond for the 1990s, with the same ingredients, but brought bang up-to-date, and with much better jokes. Cold-blooded murder just isn't Thomas Lang's cup of tea. Offered a tidy sum 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 favourite 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 femmes fatales. Up against rogue CIA agents, wanna-be 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.

"Clever and hilarious, with a story that is intricate, tense and well researched - and unstintingly joyous read."
(Time Out)
