Drummond Clark was once a spy of legendary proportions. Now, thanks to Alzheimer's disease, he's just an old man who's wandered away from home. When Charlie Clark takes a break from his latest losing streak at the track to bring Drummond back to his Brooklyn home, they find it blown sky high -- and then bullets start to fly. And when Drummond effortlessly hot-wires an escape car, Charlie begins to suspect there's more to his father than meets the eye.

Loved it. Fast and funny at times - Alzheimers isn't but this works!

Couldn't get into it. I gave up after the 100-page test

This could have been an entertaining book, if the author weren't trying so hard to be funny. It's like a bad sit-com. I usually finish novels, even the not-so-good ones. But this one is just a waste of time and I bailed about half-way.

Great premise. Filled with humour, action and great characters. The last act unraveled a bit, but still a fun read.

This is about a spy who has Alzheimer's. Cool, dark, and funny.
