A Radio Play by Andrew Rissik – 5 episodes of approx 45 minutes each.

”This five-part thriller has the plot of a Bond movie and the ambience of a Chandler novel and, after just one episode, the stamp of a classic. Rissik’s script is studded with brilliant one-liners and doomy humour, while producer Glyn Dearman captures the buzz of the ’sixties with hits from the period, and brings out cracking performances from James Aubrey as the down-at-heel hero, former assassin, Billy Hindle, and Gerald Harper as his oleaginous puppet-master, Sir Richard Snark.” (Quentin Curtis, The Independent On Sunday)
