The Gun Sellerby Hugh Laurie
Synopses & Reviews
Cold-blooded murder just isnt Thomas Langs cup of tea. Offered a bundle to assassinate an American industrialist, he opts to warn the intended victim instead—a good deed that soon takes a bad turn. Quicker than he can down a shot of his favorite whiskey, Lang is bashing heads with a Buddha statue, matching wits with evil billionaires, and putting his life (among other things) in the hands of a bevy of femme fatales.
Up against rogue CIA agents, wannabe terrorists, and an arms dealer looking to make a high-tech killing, Langs out to save the leggy lady he has come to love . . . and prevent an international bloodbath to boot.
"In this audio edition of Laurie's comic thriller, narrator Simon Prebble proves a natural at conveying the witty banter supplied by the book's protagonist, soldier of fortune Thomas Lang. Tasked with killing an American industrialist, Lang instead warns the target — a decision that draws him into a convoluted web of international intrigue. As Lang finds himself in one unlikely tight spot after another, Prebble deftly portrays the character's devilish charm. Prebble also shines as Sarah Woolf, the American femme fatale at the book's center, his voice oozing with cool glamour. Some listeners may have difficulty keeping up with the twisting plot and shifting players. But like a Hollywood spy movie, this production delivers a rollicking ride, even if the audience may not register the details of every twist and turn. A Washington Square paperback."

The irresistible tale of a former Scots Guard-turned-hired gun, a freelance soldier of fortune who also happens to be one heck of a nice guy.
