Timothy Beckon goes international, answering a call to provide personnel security for his friend, Barry Epstein, who is negotiating a complex business arrangement in London, England. Timothy’s bodyguard skills are put to the test when a sinister ‘toad-like’ mobster and his thug protector threaten the deal, but more importantly, the lives of our heroes. The mobster has a penchant for interior decorating while his henchman wants to mop up the floor with Tim. The reader sits ringside during the most intense fist-a-cuffs allowed by publishing law. But, that's not enough as Tim's girlfriend, Nellie Finn, weighs-in with a 14-inch cast iron skillet. BONG!!
Colorful characters are met along the way. In London, Tim is befriended by a bright young man bent on augmenting his father’s defense business with nanotechnology. And while Tim steadily figures-out his role in this whole deal, he gets his share of lumps. As a side trip, Tim along with Nellie rail to Galway, Ireland, if anything, to allow his left ear lobe to reattach. In town, Tim becomes a 'hit' at Bertie's boxing gym. At the same time, Nellie's Uncle Jack schools both of them a thing or two on small-scale criminality they later apply to rescuing Barry back in London. Deal-making got them into this peril and deal-making gets them out of it. Of course, the reader can’t overlook the goings-on back in the States checking in with the MAC Security Consulting Firm.
