ONCE A SPY by Keith Thomson

Drummond Clark was once a spy of legendary proportions. Now Alzheimer's disease has taken its toll and he's just a confused old man who's wandered away from home, waiting for his son to fetch him, until the bullets start to fly.

Loved this book! My husband did too! We are planning on reading the sequel with in comes out together. Gripping, funny, and great premise!

I enjoyed the book, although I felt the ending was a little on the weak side. I was unsure about the concept of the spy with Alzheimers because It was so hard to picture John Clark or Mitch Rapp in a similar situation but he pulled it off quite nicely.
I'll definitely read the sequel.
