Tanner on Ice

Lawrence Block: Tanner on Ice (2007)

From the Publisher:
Cold War superspy Evan Tanner lost the ability to sleep on a battlefield in Korea. So where the heck has he been since the '70s?

Frozen. Cryogenically. A Tanner-sicle. Which he never thought would happen when he walked into a basement in Union City, New Jersey, more than a quarter century ago. Now he's unthawed and ready to rumble, and his somewhat addled, former super-secret boss, "the Chief," is glad his favorite operative's active again.

Tanner awoke to a different world, though some bad things have remained the same... or gotten worse. Even before he can fully acclimate himself to this perplexing future, Tanner's off to Burma (which isn't really Burma anymore) to pose as a monk, destabilize the government, dodge a lethal double-cross, and rescue a beautiful prisoner.

The world's still full of conspiracy, corruption, greed, political chicanery -- and beautiful women. So Tanner's back with a vengeance, with a lot of lost time to make up for.

Evan Tanner, a globetrotting adventurer to put Indiana Jones in the shade, not only had his sleep centre destroyed in the Korean War but now he has been on extended vacation... in the deep freeze for over 25years!

Thawed but not shaken, Tanner has a lot of catching up to do. No sooner than he's reacquainted himself with Minna, his "adopted daughter" and now a beautiful and desirable women and mastered a crash course in Internet learning than he is recruited for another covert assignment - to destablise the government of Burma (or should that be Myanmar?) and he finds himself in Rangoon (or is that Yangon?) Mix in exotic surroundings, an exiled Russian beauty, foreign intrigue, cross and double cross, a mysterious dead man and you have an edgy and entertaining puzzle that only Lawrence Block could create.
