With his reputation in tatters after a painfully unsuccessful delivery of a distinguished Japanese client, former triple-A executive protection agent, Michael Bryce, two long years after the disgraceful incident, is now reduced to a mere second-class bodyguard for hire. Under those circumstances, Bryce would do anything to prove his worth once again, and as a result, it won't be long before he accepts an offer from Interpol to escort the renowned international assassin Darius Kincaid from Manchester to the Hague. The task seems simple: Bryce only needs to transport the contract killer from point A to point B, nevertheless, Kincaid, as the only one with the guts and enough hard evidence to testify against a tyrannical Belarusian dictator, is an obvious target, while the trip to the Netherlands is long and hazardous. Without a doubt, this a race against the clock as the mismatched duo will have to put aside their grudges, in a non-stop concerto for bullets.

This is best read with the song Jackie Blue by THE OZARK MOUNTAIN DAREDVILS as the theme.
It’s the end of summer soon to officially be cuffing season as it is known in the streets.
I try not to write these regularly as they seem somewhat to expose an obsession with certain actresses or at least their big screen interpretations. Not to mention i don't want to seem disrespectful to each individual and think by the next time i have moved onto a new piece about another actress or that i forgot them. this is testimony. The pieces i fear but hope aren't seen as sexist and misogynistic but I want to share me wonderment, fandom and expose actresses maybe for a wider audience. now my subject is a little more known then the last actress who I wrote a column about Olivia D'abo
