Summary

David Callan has proved himself a ruthless and effective assassin working for a small section of British intelligence. As a consequence he has made many enemies and very few friends. The Russians have uncovered a British spy inside the KGB but are willing to trade. The price they demand for the mole’s safe return is the death of Callan, in revenge for being a thorn in their side. Callan has no say in the matter; he is to be sacrificed. Yet with his eyesight failing and his guns, money and passport all taken from him, Callan has no intention of going quietly.

Poor narration

Probably one of the best Callan stories unfortunately, spoilt by unemotional narration with emphasis in the wrong places. Some mispronunciation of words - the worst being the name Meres. Anyone who watched the excellent TV series knows it Meres like in Windermere, not Merez.
