A blast from the past! I just read this book again for the first time in many years,it was written in 1979 but is still a great read. The main character Nicolai Hel is raised by a Japanese Go master and is an expert in martial arts, art, spelunking, mountain climbing, well just about everything. Nic is recruited by the C.I.A as a translator and soon enters the covert world. Nic soon becomes a skillful killer and retires to the Basque region in Spain where he soon is engaged to come out of retirement. The book is a bit dated but great escapism and a good look back at the cold war mentality.
