Scruffy and down-at-heel, Charlie is a far cry from the popular idea of an espionage agent. Once he was merely an embarrassment to his department; now he's become a major threat to what the CIA and British Intelligence politely like to call "national security". Two years ago Charlie was "set up", but managed to outwit both the American and the British agents sent to dispose of him. Since then he has been holed up in Switzerland, dreaming of retirement and a long-term affair with a bottle. Now the two nations involved are determined to settle their score with Charlie and remove an irritating reminder of their own incompetence. And so the order goes out on both sides of the Atlantic... Deal with Charlie Muffin - permanently! 'A tale in the very best seedy Greene fashion' YORKSHIRE POST

Charlie Muffin (neither the man nor his name) doesn't fit anyone's view of an international spy. He's a poor dresser, getting old, happily married, and hated by both the CIA and British Intelligence. Soon the directive goes out: Deal with Charlie--permanently. Narrator Hayward Morse is splendid with a huge cast of characters from the world over. Not only does he enliven a typical spy story, he also gives each person noticeable eccentricities (more than Freemantle's words convey), adding sparkle to the story. Great intrigue for espionage buffs. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
