The Meal of Fortune
The worlds of arms dealing, espionage and TV cookery collide in a fast moving comedy caper.
Failing celebrity agent Dermot Jack thinks his luck has turned when a mysterious Russian oligarch hires him to launch his daughter’s pop career in the west. Disaffected MI5 officer Anna Preston is equally pleased to be handed the task of catching the Russian – in reality a notorious arms dealer – before he can sell a stolen nuclear warhead to the highest bidder. Dermot might just be able to help her out. So what if he’s her ex? That was years ago and she’s so over him now, isn’t she? And she never suspects that it is anything other than sheer coincidence that is about to bring them together again.
The Meal of Fortune is the first in a planned trilogy of comedy thrillers parodying society’s obsession with celebrity.
