With an Afterword by Nick Triplow
Published in North America for the first time-the final novel featuring Jack Carter (Get Carter, Jack Carter's Law) has London's slickest operator journeying to a Spanish villa to protect a wise-cracking Italian-American mobster.Jack Carter is not thrilled when his frustratingly unprofessional employers-London mob kingpins Gerald and Les Fletcher-force him to take a vacation. Jack doesn't like leaving the business in other people's hands, but the company villa in Spain promises sunshine and some time to plot his next move. Jack soon finds he is on anything but a vacation. The villa is already inhabited by a cowardly house steward and a knuckle-dragging American gangster. Jack has apparently been sent to protect the American, who has turned informant. There are few things that Jack Carter hates more than surprises. Informants being chief among them.
