John Harper, is retired from the military and is enjoying spending his days practicing his occupation as a piano player. When the government needed a spy that played the piano Harper was recruited and sent to Panama to play at a New Yearís Eve party. It was soon evident that the resort hotel was a cover for other activities.
Harper immediately is thrown into the thick of things and bullets fly. He has narrow escapes and is assisted by a couple of buddies and the two girls he has met in Panama. One is a very beautiful bar girl and the other is the daughter of a Colonel. Both women are very interesting characters and ones you will like I am sure.
In spite of all the danger and espionage, breaking and entering, there are many humorous scenes. Harperís first ride into town is in a vehicle where the driver sits on a kitchen chair and his buddy sits behind him and holds the chair steady.
It is my hope that we will see more John Harper books in the future.
