The Gun Seller
Random House, 8 févr. 2011 - 352 pages
When Thomas Lang, a hired gunman with a soft heart, is contracted to assassinate an American industrialist, he opts instead to warn the intended victim - a good deed that doesn't go unpunished.
Within hours Lang is butting heads with a Buddha statue, matching wits with evil billionaires, and putting his life (among other things) in the hands of a bevy of femmes fatales, whilst trying to save a beautiful lady ... and prevent an international bloodbath to boot.
A wonderfully funny novel from one of Britain's most famous comedians and star of award-winning US TV medical drama series, House.
