Several phantoms haunt the “decommissioned” agents of the grand 0007 pantheon, not the least of which is a dream of the Red Phone ringing with ‘N’, the organizational honcho at the end of the line, ordering them to report in for another mission. But, a mission where? Melville, Louisiana??? 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 J. Lomas serves up delightfully witty (and sometimes magnificently deranged) fiction with Operation Aspic.

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, George, Roger, Timmy 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, as brilliantly imagined by Anthony Lomas. As hearty as Cajun gumbo and cold beer, Operation Aspic will have readers coming together 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.

This book will be featured at the 2012 Book Expo America in New York City, on Jun. 05 - Jun. 08 , 2012.
