Description

An infamous Islamic militant defects and becomes British Intelligence's single most important source of information about global terrorism ...But has he really defected? Exactly who is playing whom here? Beirut-based British Agent Harry Boone is not too sure ...But he's certainly not going to kill himself finding out. Boone is a bon viveur whose elaborate 'system' is tailored precisely to the needs of his clubhouse lifestyle. He devotes most of his energies to enjoying the charms of his mistress Maria, while his bosses in the British Secret Service play into his hands with their snobby factionalism and grinding bureaucracy. A well-timed fax can keep them busy for a week. Becoming a major conduit for high-grade intelligence about global terrorist attacks was not part of the plan. Against his will, Boone is drawn deeper and deeper into a secret world of violence and terror in which nothing and no one is what it seems. Taut, witty and fast-paced, The Boone System became an instant bestseller in France when it was published last year.
