Read full description of the books:Nemesis In Spain by George J Thomas is a novel that will appeal to the reader who likes repeated tableaux of fast-flowing action. It’s not really a whodunit, more of a who’s doing what.
Alexei is a retired Russian Spetsnaz officer who now offers a freelance service. A briefing in Russia from some decidedly shady business operators identifies a string of debts that really need to be paid. Most of them, but not all, involve money! They have been let down by partners in Spanish property ventures and somehow large amounts of cash have disappeared without the real estate it was to fund becoming very real. Alexei is thus hired to do the job.
Not only must he track down the offending developers and local politicians, he must also extract repayments of the debts from them before meting out something suitable, some punishment that might elicit grunts of approval from those who have been wronged. And then, if that were not already enough of a task for our anti-hero, he is notified by an arm of the state and there emerges a suggestion that he might do another little job on the side, and so a contract on another target materialises. It’s a hectic life when you are a hired killer.
So with his favourite false beards and wigs in his luggage, he sets off for Spain and arrives in Barcelona. He meets up with an old flame, Hayzu who, at thirty-two is still a bit of a peach. They have fond shared memories of a previous decade when they shared a few romantic bombs and bullets. She was also an ETA operative and Alexei’s mouth soon starts to water at the quality of the connections he might make. Hayzu is something of a sleeper, still awaiting her next assignment. She tags onto Alexei and becomes a sleeping partner, and one that doesn’t sleep a lot once opportunity has arisen, so to speak.
Events unfold at pace. There are Glock pistols and Uzi sub-machine guns. Alexei, at one point, is caught short on the equipment front and is reduced to ordering rocket propelled grenades over the phone. There’s a trip to Mallorca to do in the bit on the side and then a week or two in Benidorm, where Hayzu gets a job as a waitress. Alexei meanwhile busies himself with a local mayor and a brothel.
The plot rarely stays in one place for more than a chapter or two. But then that’s the point. Nemesis In Spain is a fast-moving, let’s get on with the next murder, retribution, act of torture or debt repayment by internet bank transfer tale. And in that Nemesis In Spain does deliver what it promises.
