Robert Hale UK edition, published 1984.
Royle was a dangerous customer, a man born without a conscience, who could deal ruthlessly with trouble and live with the consequences. He refused to worry about problems before they arose, which could expose his Achilles' Heel of overconfidence, but his lack of scruples allowed him to earn a good living by walking through customs halls without displaying a trace of guilt - while wearing a body-belt packed with cocaine.

This is the first volume of a sequence which began in the early 1980s and reached volume 5 in the early 2000s. The occasional nature of the books has created the interesting distortion of a story spread over two or three years of 'story' time set against a background of the changing technology and attitudes of a couple of decades.
