Tanner is a master of disguise, accustomed to navigating the hidden geography of the world's most dangerous countries. Borders and bureaucracies mean nothing to him. Passports and visas are but a trifle to a man who speaks countless languages, with contacts in global subversive organizations. Tanner's been smuggled out of Turkey, fled the Soviet Union in an experimental aircraft, and escaped from a bamboo prison in Thailand. Now, he's been given his most difficult assignment, to infiltrate a country motivated to repel his every attempt to enter, a country which will imprison him, drive him underground, and cause Tanner to call upon his wits and contacts as never before. That country is Canada.

"Evan Michael Tanner may be a spy--maybe not. The only Tanner certainties are his permanent insomnia (his sleep center was destroyed in the Korean War), his support of underdogs and revolutionaries, and his unfailing ability to get into more trouble with less effort than anyone. It's 1967. Tanner's adopted daughter wants to visit the Montreal Expo. However, Canada suspects Tanner of being a terrorist. When the two cross the border illegally, the insanity begins. Narrator Nick Sullivan is a winner. He nails each of Tanner's sardonic throwaway lines. Sullivan turns run-ins with the Mounties, some dastardly Cubans, and a QuŽbecois separatists' cell into high farce. His Canadian accents are a hoot, helping to make Lawrence Block's tongue-in-cheek romp a whole lot of fun. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
