Drummond Clark was once a spy of legendary proportion. Now Alzheimer's disease has taken its toll and he's just a confused old man. When Drummond's house is blown sky high while he was at the track, his son Charlie learns that his father's job as an appliance salesman was just a cover-up for an elaborate plan to sell would-be terrorists faulty nuclear detonators. Drummond's intricate knowledge of this device is dangerous to have rattling around in an addled brain. The CIA want to "contain" him - and so do some other shady characters who send Charlie and is father on a wild chase.

Loved it. Fast and funny at times - Alzheimers isn't but this works!

Couldn't get into it. I gave up after the 100-page test

This could have been an entertaining book, if the author weren't trying so hard to be funny. It's like a bad sit-com. I usually finish novels, even the not-so-good ones. But this one is just a waste of time and I bailed about half-way.

Great premise. Filled with humour, action and great characters. The last act unraveled a bit, but still a fun read.

This is about a spy who has Alzheimer's. Cool, dark, and funny.
