A Killer for a Song


Secret agent Boysie Oakes feels completely alone. He is on the run and terrified, travelling from Paris, across France, and down to his old stamping ground, the Cote d’Azur. But who is chasing him? And why? Nobody escapes the past, and Boysie is no exception – events are catching up with him like hounds descending upon a screeching hare. A nemesis comes first in the shape of his former boss in the Department – the oily James George Mostyn. Sought out by Mostyn, Boysie finds himself back on active service and forced to sit on SEAT – Special Executive for Anti-Terrorism. A routine conference in Paris, however, reveals the truth. Both Mostyn and Boysie are being set up at the wrong end of a series of ruthless liquidations, and somebody has to lose. Before he can shout for a lifebuoy, Boysie finds himself on the run – both from the French police and security organisations, who want him for murder; and from the shadows of the past, who want him dead.
