Imagine all the previous James Bonds reunited as an elite force. Their first mission; go to the U.S. and steal a secret recipe from a very famous Louisiana chef in the heart of Cajun country so the British culinary team can win an upcoming World Culinary Olympics. Piece of cake, right? Not so fast. Murphy’s law intervenes with one disaster after another as the aging agents, Sean, Roger, Timmy, George and Pierce manage to create havoc and change history in this riotous new adventure.
This story will dispel most of what everyone thought they knew about the Cajun people and leave them contemplating what’s real and what’s not in their own lives. And, by the way haven't people always wondered what happened to those decommissioned spies of years gone by? Well here it is. With enthusiasm worthy of Joseph Heller and the expertise of a Cajun cook combining the choicest fictional ingredients with reality and getting the combination just right, Anthony Lomas serves it up brilliantly in Operation Aspic for a fais do-do the likes of what Carl Hiaasen might inspire if he were mucking around in Cajun country Louisiana rather than Florida.
