A Cold, Cold Dish

by Michael Howard

Based on a true story, this is the extraordinary tale of a drug-smuggling pilot running heroin out of Southern Iran, to an island in the Persian Gulf, in a Twin Otter aircraft.

There, under the guise of ferrying oil workers around the Gulf from Das Island, our pilot skulks off to Iran every now and again to acquire the drugs, flying into the remote mountains of Iran with the cash and then back out with the heroin. Once out of the clutches of the Iranians, the narcotics are dropped onto oil tankers to be distributed around the world.

On one unfortunate and unlikely trip, he's ambushed - driven by greed, someone wanted both the money and the drugs. A nightmarish shoot-out ensues. He gets away but his best friend, who helped him with the loading of the drugs, is not so lucky however and gets shot in the spine, resulting in confinement to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

The pilot vows to discover the man at the top, the mastermind behind the trade and the culprit of his buddy's life-changing injuries, so he can wreak his revenge.

As a result, he embarks on a perilous journey, which involves the Mafia, money laundering and, of course, dicing with a very dangerous man.

Along the way, we meet a gorgeous girl adept at weapons and unarmed combat, and a highly successful bank robber, who is forced to retire by a shadowy Canadian intelligence officer, while we twist and turn towards our final, improbable conclusion.

Reuniting the intriguing crew from A Cold, Cold Dish, we take the pilot, the girl, the bank robber, and with the shadowy Canadian intelligence officer in charge, into a series of high-octane and complex adventures.

The intelligence officer is now running the four of them as a specialised 'black ops' team. This group rescue and repatriate 'deniable' operations agents who have got themselves into extreme danger or difficulty in all sorts of locations you might imagine; from Northern Ireland to Kenya, as well as Eastern Europe and beyond.

Our tale begins with the daughter of a man, who worked for the Canadian high commission in London, who had died very suddenly.

After his passing and a heartbreaking funeral, she has to begin to clear her father's house. The emotional, grieving and vulnerable girl goes through his home office to discover, hidden from normal, everyday view, an undisclosed safe, and contained within that safe are numerous files which include mission details.
