Lily, the pretty wife he deeply loves, dreams of retirement on the paradise island of Ko Samui, but Jack will happily settle for a bungalow in Devon. Until, that is, influential businessman Emslie Warnaby offers him Ko Samui on a plate. Or, rather, first-class air tickets to the island, plus the deeds of ownership to the Calm Seas Hotel. All Jack has to do in return is steal an incriminating file from the Fraud Investigation office at police headquarters – which is, he discovers, as secure as Fort Knox…” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
