Overview

From the creator of Jurassic Park and ER

A pulp-fiction thrill ride through a deadly case of mistaken identity 

Playboy Roger Carr is handsome, wealthy, and connected. As an occasional lawyer, he’s the right man to send to the French Riviera to secure a villa for an important client. It’s the perfect assignment, complete with fast cars and fast women, until strange things begin to happen and Roger realizes that someone is trying to kill him. 

A ruthless terrorist organization called the Associates is carrying out assassinations from Egypt to Denmark. To stop them, the CIA orders their own super assassin—a man who bears a striking resemblance to Roger Carr—to intercept the Associates in France. The CIA assassin never shows up, but the clueless counselor does, and now he finds himself on the run from some of the world’s deadliest terrorists.
