The Fall Guy by Ritchie PerryA tale of high adventure about a man who is blackmailed by British intelligence into helping to smash an international drug-smuggling ring in Brazil. The man is Philis, a British expatriate living in Santos. All he wants is to be left to mind his own business which happens to be a thriving black-market operation, importing necessities such as Scotch whisky and American cigarettes. His nemesis is Pawson, the head of SR(2), who isn’t at all scrupulous about what pressure he brings to bear. It doesn’t take Philis very long to appreciate that he’s been set up as a very expendable fall guy.
