Publisher's Summary

Royal protocol dictated that the king exit the car last. But as the important man was about to emerge, a hail of gunfire erupted, spraying the royal Hummer. Alone, in a foreign city, he seeks temporary refuge in the Good Burger diner. Here he meets Lom, a crazy Korean War vet, who misses his old life of danger and intrigue and who embraces the idea of hunting those who are hunting the king. Lom does so by kicking ass and taking names, and by teaching the baby-faced king the ways of the street, battlefield style.
His written message is clear: "I heard you were looking for me. Now I'm looking for you!" This action-packed hunt for the assassins begins with the United Nations. It takes us from Charlie's New York City pawn shop into hidden train stations and desolate warehouses, and ultimately to carefully orchestrated deals with jewel thieves and gun runners. Things move along well until the heart-wrenching kidnapping.
With the clock ticking against him, Lom must think quickly in order to save the life of the one he loves. Will the old man make it in time? Will the King live? Only time, and his survival skills, will tell.

Good reading!

Bought this on a whim, never having heard of the author before. Boy! turns out that I'm smarter than I look. Fun action/adventure with murder and humor as side dishes. The publisher's blurb gives some of the characters' histories and the reason that they got together. No need for recap or spoilers here, just know that this is a great tale for any gender or age bracket!
A. T. Al Benelli does an interesting job as narrator.
