9780099469391: The Gun Seller

When Thomas Lang, a hired gunman with a soft heart, is contracted to assassinate an American industrialist, he opts instead to warn the intended victim - a good deed that doesn't go unpunished.

Within hours Lang is butting heads with a Buddha statue, matching wits with evil billionaires, and putting his life (among other things) in the hands of a bevy of femmes fatales, whilst trying to save a beautiful lady ... and prevent an international bloodbath to boot.

A wonderfully funny novel from one of Britain's most famous comedians and star of award-winning US TV medical drama series, House.

Review:

"Clever and hilarious, with a story that is intricate, tense and well researched - and unstintingly joyous read" ( Time Out)

"A ripping spoof of the spy genre" ( Vanity Fair)

"A very funny book ... makes many another comic novel look slow-witted in comparison" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"A terrific debut" ( Daily Telegraph)

From the Publisher:

In a 'ripping spoof of the spy genre' (Vanity Fair), Hugh Laurie tells the tale of a former Scots Guard-turned-hired gun, a freelance soldier of fortune, who also happens to be one hell of a nice guy.
