Their age keeps the bad guys from taking them seriously and Charles and Louise make that work for them.
When the President gives Charles and Louise a bizarre assignment – to embarrass the President of France – their search for a scandal sends them to Kazakhstan, where they use their peculiar talents in “dirty tricks” to tie Le Président to a drug ring and a terrorist plot. But before they can carry out their assignment, they’re kidnapped and left to die on the frigid Kazakh steppe.
What the reviews have said:
What a fun and quick read! It’s so nice to see an older couple as protagonists of a story.
Charles and Louise are like old friends, folks you enjoy being around. Read it, you will enjoy it.
Woody’s experience in Kazakhstan comes into play with two delightful characters. Imagine: A ‘spy’ novel with no violence!! If you haven’t got it yet, I recommend that you do so.
This book gives a wonderful portrait of little known parts of the old Soviet Union. Really interesting description of exotic people and places. Unexpected characters and fine suspense.
