An American diplomat in Lisbon is shot in the back of the head. A Frenchman survives being pushed in front of a train, only to be murdered in his hospital bed.

A dilettante playboy sent to France on a cushy assignment, he lands himself right in the middle of an international arms deal. Both sides of the conflict have mistaken him for an agent, and the secret service interventions of a dozen countries will do anything to secure him—dead or alive.This ebook features an illustrated biography of Michael Crichton including rare images from the author's estate.

Not as good as his other early works. Trashy & rediculously improbable.

It's an interesting book with funny twist. Really enjoy it.

One of Michael Crichton's earlier works that he put under a different name while attending Harvard. You can tell it doesn't have the same feel as his later big works like Twister or Jurassic Park. At the same time, it's a great piece about what would you do if mistaken for someone else-the lead is quick witted and seems to always land on his feet.
