|About the Book|
Lewis Cane fought with the French Resistance during the Second World War and gained a justified reputation as a tough and resourceful man. So its no great surprise when one of his ex-Resistance comrades, now a successful lawyer in the early 1960s in Paris employs him to escort a businessman from Brittany to Liechtenstein for a crucial meeting. There are just two problems: the mans associates dont want him to get there, and the police have a warrant out for the mans arrest on a charge of rape. For Cane, it becomes a desperate race across France, fighting against resourceful and ruthless adversaries and avoiding the forces of law and order every step of the way . . .
