The American Envoy

Wednesday, 19 May 2010

Money . . .  Power . . .  Drugs . . .  Women . . .  just another day at the office.

Boston journalist Dave Schumann is in line for a major posting from the US Secretary of State. But instead, his big smart mouth gets him exited to Derry, the rainiest city in Ireland.

There, the new envoy is forced to contend with psychotic drug smugglers, a leftie shock-jock who wants to burn him live on air and a renegade security team who are monitoring his every move.

Schumann’s letters to his father and friends reveal his increasingly precarious – and hilarious – struggle to cope with the most thankless job on earth.

And that’s before he discovers there’s a spy in the camp who has dark plans for the Presidential visit.
