Series: Boysie Oakes
(From the publisher):
The Russians had a file on Boysie Oakes thicker than his own skull. They had a plan to liquidate the Liquidator, who was responsible for the killing of so many of their agents, and to infiltrate British security: they'd found Boysie's exact double - working in a tractor factory - and trained him to speak, drink and even think like Boysie Oakes.
When Boysie was scheduled to attend a secret demonstration of America's newest and biggest nuclear toy, the Russians thought they had found the perfect moment to act.
The impersonation was faultless. Even the lovely Chicory Triplehouse couldn't tell the difference. Only one thing had been overlooked. As well as Boysie's indiscriminate taste for whisky and women, the Kremlin wizards had given their double Boysie's raging, uncontrollable fear of death and danger, his inability to carry out orders, and his habit of making massive and explosive mistakes...
