Johnny Royle was a dangerous customer, a man born without a conscience, who could deal ruthlessly with trouble and live with the consequences. His philosophy of refusing to worry about problems before they confronted him was something which could expose his Achilles' Heel of over-confidence, but his lack of scruples let him earn a good living by walking through customs halls without showing a trace of guilt while wearing a body-belt packed with cocaine.
Between smuggling trips and periodic energetic celebrations, Royle led a fairly untroubled life. Then outsiders began to trespass on his personal space and take a very inconvenient interest in what he was up to. Some of them had their own motive; which was usually hostile. Others did it for the money that came through the post along with Royle's photograph and his name and address. Someone wanted him dead.
The police joined the list of unwelcome intruders following an encounter with a professional assassin, whose marriage Royle had broken up. Unable to part with more than a fraction of the truth, Royle had to stonewall relentlessly. But then, along came a £50,000 invitation and some revealing answers.
