Item description for Parallel Truths by Robert Eringer...
Meet Jay Sandak, a maverick private spy with a penchant for the good life. In this debut novel, Sandak accepts an assignment from his former employer, the CIA. Operating out of Monaco, Sandak becomes embroiled in an "extraordinary rendition," intelligence jargon for kidnap and repatriation. The target is Markham Fitch, a secretive billionaire who fled the United States for sanctuary in Switzerland years earlier. Fitch leads Sandak to a strange German baron, a peddler of nuclear metals stolen from Russia, who believes his genius will bring about a New Age renaissance. Sandak enters a gray zone of rival U.S. government agencies, supervised by risk-hating bureaucrats like Pikestaff, the spluttering operations chief at the CIA. He struggles to complete his ever-evolving mission, always one cocktail ahead of latigue (a combination of jet-lag and fatigue) as he yo-yos the Atlantic. Back in his favorite Monaco bar, Sandak plans the final phase of this intricate operation, certain he wasn't paid nearly enough for his audacity.

3 1/2 stars Dec 23, 2000
Jay Sandek is hired for a job by his former employer, the CIA, to find a way to get Markham Fitch, a billionaire who is in sanctuary in Switzerland, to a place where he can be arrested. The methods used by Sandek are somewhat out of the CIA's area of legality. The quirky characters and odd the mannerisms of these characters, gave this novel a humorous edge. I see Sandek and his favorite drink, Corona, no lime, return for another adventure. Overall it was an enjoyable read, and quick.
