Summary
In London in 1973, Willie Parker informed on his gangster colleagues. Afterward, he's packed off to the south of Spain to live out his days far from the reach of the criminals he has put away. Ten years go by in peace, until one day he returns home, is kidnapped, and given into the hands of Mr. Braddock and his assistant Myron. They are to deliver him to Paris, and the boss he put away. Trouble is, Willie totally accepting of his fate--a former criminal turned Zen master--which unnerves Braddock and Myron to no end. The beleaguered hit men are burdened with a female witness, the Spanish police are after them, and soon nothing is going according to plan
