From the Publisher:
On the heels of Once a Spy, which PW hailed as a “wildly original debut [with] an action-packed story line,” Keith Thomson returns with a breakneck thriller that’s twice as explosive as the original.
In the tradition of Robert Ludlum, with a witty twist, Thomson’s 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?
Charlie and Drummond Clark are now in Switzerland, hiding out from criminal charges in America and using the time to experiment with treatments to retrieve Drummond’s memory. When NSA operative Alice Rutherford, with whom Charlie has fallen in love, is kidnapped, the Clarks must dodge a formidable CIA case officer and his team to get her back.
"[T]he pages are packed with guns, spooks, island nations, and everything else you'd expect...." - Keith Staskiewicz 03/11/2011 "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."
