When a mad Viking wannabe decides he'd like to conquer the world (or at least parts of it), and starts buying up unethical scientists and other experts from around the world to help him do that, MI5 1/2's Triple-O Five must leave his bride and get back to work, this time in the American West, with his longtime friend and colleague Leandre Durand. When Durand's uncle is suspected of being one of the unethical researchers, things get even more interesting. This is not to mention that MI5 1/2 is again having internal difficulties - this time with accountants. Sequel to Not Exactly Dead.
