Meet Billy Doyle: a skilled military Ops Specialist turned uproarious stand-up comedian. His days of combat may have taken a backseat to laughter, but his fighting spirit hasn’t hung up its boots just yet. In a twist of fate, his comedic routine catches the eye of a British Intelligence Officer, especially when Billy effortlessly fends off thugs post-show. This act of valour swiftly lands him a new gig, melding his military prowess with his comedic charm in the covert world of espionage.

Billy’s debut in the cloak-and-dagger realm involves investigating, and possibly eliminating, the nefarious Lord Carmthen, the mastermind of a grand blackmailing empire stationed right out of London. As Carmthen’s dark money fuels a drug syndicate stretching across South America, Billy finds himself chasing shadows from the bustling heart of South Florida to the sun-kissed shores of the Caribbean.

Infiltrating the cartel isn’t a laughing matter, but Billy’s comedic facade proves to be an unexpected asset in a world where trust is a rare commodity. As he delves deeper into the underbelly of the drug trade, entangling with the cartel’s members, his mission morphs into a crusade to cripple the cartel’s stronghold.

But the stakes are sky-high, and the moments of peril Billy faces demand far more than punchlines to navigate. Every covert operation drags him further into a deadly game where missteps could be fatal, and trust could be a mirage. The only constant companion Billy has is danger, and his only armour is his undying resolve to dismantle the tendrils of corruption and hopefully, live to tell the tale.
