Lamastre by Michael Strong newly listed for sale on the fantastic BookLovers of Bath web site!Robert Hale, 1984, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: Once the top hit-man of Europe. Lamastre had been dealt with effectively and painfully by Harold Levi, the financier who never gave in to pressure. And now Lamastre has escaped from the German prison where Levi had put him while, in Zurich, the fat-cats who had procured his release, rubbed their whiskers and laughed at the thought of the revenge that Lamastre would take on Levi, a man they feared as a miser fears ruin.
The action swings from Germany, to France, to Zurich, to Southeast Asia and back to London and rural England with Hong Kong bankers. Bangkok bar-girls, an ex-Guardsman, a former Israeli commando and the finest pair of killers that Paris can produce, all involved in the intricate and fast-moving plot. And, of course, there is Ferguson, hired by Levi to hunt and destroy Lamastre, who almost succeeds yet doesnt quite fail.
