Alex Law is a numbed, spiritually bankrupt ex-CIA agent when an old agency friend identifies him as the only solution to a national security problem. Soon he is embroiled in a drugs scandal of monumental proportions that requires him to dredge up all his old self-resect and courage.
Alex Law is lost; more than twenty years of secret wars and spying have left him numbed and spiritually bankrupt. An alcoholic womaniser and veteran CIA 'genius', famed for his insurgency techniques that helped the Cold War in Africa during the 1970s and 1980s, Alex is now a comic anachronism in the world of espionage. Hopelessly he longs for his estranged wife, Helen, and a return to the days of their youthful happiness, when he had proudly followed in the blue-blooded footsteps of his own father, a famous Cold Warrior. Enter a gang of bent CIA men, with a plan to run the world. When an old company friend identifies Alex as the only remaining solution to a national security problem, Alex becomes embroiled in a drugs scandal of monumental proportions that requires him to dredge up all his old self-respect and courage in order to save his wife and son.
