Man In A Suitcase Tt

McGill, ex-intelligence agent, now modern bounty-hunter, uses his experience gained in the espionage jungle to earn his living. McGill doesn’t seek danger… danger seeks McGill. He is a lonely man in a tough world… vulnerable because of his past, unable to claim protection. He can trust no one, but people have to trust him. His home is where his suitcase goes. It’s his most important possession, because he may find himself anywhere, anytime. Risking his life is part of the business as McGill travels the globe plying the only skill he knows – undercover espionage.
