This is the 2nd of Charles Bronson's books I've had the privilege to read and I must get my hands on the others as soon as I can.

This gentleman (& I do not use that loosely) deserves to live his life free from constraints - those constraints being politicians who wouldn't know a real gentleman from a frog. Long live Charlie Bronson
