Introducing the antics and misadventures of Mike Rant, jobbing actor and reluctant spy.
‘Whilst the following story is completely true, I have slightly changed my own identity in order to avoid prosecution and/or violent death – or, at the very least, a good kicking. Not that any of the events contained herein were my fault – or at least none of the important ones. Or only some of them.
Unless you include obtaining money under false pretences. Or the borrowing of various motor vehicles without permission. Or perverting the course of justice. Or the thing about interfering with the dead guy. But I was desperate at the time.
That came out all wrong. No, wait, if you’d just let me explain…’
