Just as Charles begins to succumb to boredom and despair, a story crops up on the news that relates to his last ever field mission. He contacts MI6, but his concerns are thoroughly dismissed. Rightly or wrongly, he is determined to find the answer, even if it means certain death.
En route to California he falls asleep, reliving the vivid details of the mission that changed his life forever.
Written in the spirit of the James Bond novels, The Golden Years brings a thoroughly modern twist.
