Did you know Hugh Laurie wrote a book? I knew Hugh Laurie wrote a book! As a matter of fact, I read this book long before I read Stephen Fry's. Half of the comedic pair of Fry and Laurie, Hugh Laurie, best known in America for the television medical drama House, wrote this novel, which is a spoof of the spy genre.
When Thomas Lang is offered tons of money to kill an American businessman, he decides murder is not for him and warns the victim that someone is out to kill him. This causes some CIA agents, terrorists, and an arms-dealer on his tail. He must avoid an international bloodbath and save a femme fatale. It's hilarious and action-packed. Fry fans, Laurie fans, mystery fans, and comedy fans will adore it.
