In Hollywood, Cary Grant has grown weary of cinema's glamour, but Her Majesty's Secret Service will break his malaise with a bizarre diplomatic mission. In Naples, Lucky Luciano fixes horse races and begins to lay the foundation for the global heroin trade. And in Bologna, a bartender searches for true love and his missing communist father. It is 1954--the height of the Cold War--and these three are on a path toward an intersection that will involve the nascent KGB, Joseph McCarthy, Frances Farmer, Parisian lowlifes, Marshal Tito, David Niven, James Bond, and a very special television set called the McGuffin Electric. This book is a political thriller, a comic spy caper, a romance, and a social satire.--From publisher description

My favorite writer's collective. This book was so much fun to read. AND Cary Grant (my favorite actor) is a character. What is there not to love!
