Once A SpyBook - 2010
Drummond Clark was once a spy of legendary proportion. Now Alzheimer's disease has taken its toll and he's just a confused old man. When Drummond's house is blown sky high while he was at the track, his son Charlie learns that his father's job as an appliance salesman was just a cover-up for an elaborate plan to sell would-be terrorists faulty nuclear detonators. Drummond's intricate knowledge of this device is dangerous to have rattling around in an addled brain. The CIA want to "contain" him - and so do some other shady characters who send Charlie and is father on a wild chase. A debut thriller with energy, wit, and style to spare.
