(From the publisher):
"Bodyguard required. Ex-Commando preferred. Good prospects and pay for the right man." - it looked like a good number, and Frank Mitchell was out of a job. And he had all the qualifications. The body needing guarding was Sarek, a black-market dealer in smuggled diamonds - but the body that really caught Frank's attention was Rita's. Rita was Sarek's wife, and she'd been waiting a long time for the foolproof plan to rid herself of the skinny little crook who called himself her husband...The prize was high - freedom for her, and a parcel of diamonds for the man who helped her. Frank walked in at just the right moment...
