Summary (From the publisher):

Thomas Lang used to be an officer of the Scots Guard, now he is unemployed and drifting. The only commodity he has to sell is himself. But when he is offered a contract to murder a wealthy businessman he politely declines. He goes to warn the target, is attacked by a tough already on the premises and defends himself. When the most beautiful girl he's ever seen appears, he tells her a series of lies. And in no time, Lang, who would rather be riding his Kawasaki ZZR 1100, finds himself caught up in international intrigue, spying, violence, murder... and love.

Lang seems helpless, but confronted by the minions of the British Secret Service, the CIA and assorted local and international villains, he manages single-handedly to orchestrate a high adrenaline caper involving a prototype military helicopter capable of going five hundred miles per hour, a sinister arms dealer, international terrorists, beautiful girls and just enough sex.
