The Mind of a Genius by David Snowden

What in the world could possibly be of interest to MI4, the CIA, the British Secret Service, and Scotland Yard? British Scientist Malcolm Prince had just completed work on a secret formula--so secret no one really knew what the secret formula was or what it would do. But, when Prince dies without having formally announced the details of this formula, world agencies go berserk.

Snowdon weaves us through a tale that follows one particular MI4 agent and his efforts to find out everything he can about the formula through seducing Prince's widow, Laura--and, at the same time, protect her from all the people wanting to get their hands on the secret information.

What we get is a mind-blowing race...I won't ruin the ending by revealing who wins!

A quick, satisfying weekend read.
