Synopsis:

Joe Spork spends his days fixing antique clocks. The son of infamous London criminal Mathew “Tommy Gun” Spork, he has turned his back on his familys mobster history and aims to live a quiet life. That orderly existence is suddenly upended when Joe activates a particularly unusual clockwork mechanism. His client, Edie Banister, is more than the kindly old lady she appears to be—shes a retired international secret agent. And the device? Its a 1950s doomsday machine. Having triggered it, Joe now faces the wrath of both the British government and a diabolical South Asian dictator who is also Edies old arch-nemesis. On the upside, Joes got a girl: a bold receptionist named Polly whose smarts, savvy and sex appeal may be just what he needs. With Joes once-quiet world suddenly overrun by mad monks, psychopathic serial killers, scientific geniuses, and threats to the future of conscious life in the universe, he realizes that the only way to survive is to muster the courage to fight, help Edie complete a mission she abandoned years ago and pick up his fathers old gun...
