Former spy and on the run, Charlie Muffin agrees to guard a valuable stamp collection on exhibit in Florida. Problem is, the FBI wants the collection stolen so they can nab the likely thief, a big-time mobster. As in any Charlie Muffin story there are double crosses, triple crosses and quadruple crosses. With each plot twist, another group gets involved in the going-on. The story ends with a huge shootout between all the groups involved as they converge on the gangster's fortified mansion. Please note-the series should be read in order (this is #4). Each adventure builds on and refers to previous adventures several times.… (lisätietoja)

How did I miss this author?? Another winner by Brian Freemantle. This time, both the CIA and British Intelligence have to deal with a Charlie Muffin keen on revenge. The funny aspect of things present in the first volume is almost absent here. It gives the book a more serious tone, which makes the book very enjoyable.
