The Singlebody papers (Classified) (http://www.booksie.com/The Singlebody Papers (Classified))
The sole holder of the secret of the world's favourite drink is, unknown to him, being pursued by unreconstructed former Soviet Intelligence, trying to save their jobs. The US Intelligence take an interest in their interes in The Singlebody Papers (Classified). The trail leads them all: U.S. Marines and Russian Commandos, to the Scottish ancestral home of the recipe owner, where they find that the recipe is also coveted by a Macmegalomaniac bent on world domination, financed by Scottish gold; all mined for him by passing enslaved tourists. A grieving, ageing, Aussie Vietnam veteran adds his guerrilla war experience to the mayhem.
