What do MI5 bosses do when one of their officers is involved in a fatal shooting, opening the agency to the risk of coming under yet another media and political spotlight? They send him to an outpost known as Red Station. It's remote, it's uncomfortable ... and it's a home for washed-out spooks. All they tell Harry is to keep his head down and do his job. What they don't tell him is that the Russians are coming ... and that Harry won't be coming back

Setting out to right past wrongs, he blackmails the town's baddies into doing the right thing by threatening to foreclose on their mortgages. A hilarious story of marriage and love and second chances
