A JOB ABROAD by George Bartram

Email this review


Stay home and read this one -- an almost mindblown con with a great deal of sophisticated electronic equipment (as in Fair Game -- but a shade more real). Meers, a middle-aged professor of English, full of accidie re his teaching and marriage, is recruited by something called the National Security Agency, to go abroad and identify an old friend -- or is he a foreign agent? But this proves to be a point of no return -- badly beaten, his suicide is next arranged, and then the eradication of the man who's to be dummied in as our next president. Bartram is a fearless plotter -- he writes well enough to get away with it.
