Disastrous events in Iran foiled Greg Alexander’s 1978 expedition to India. He lost his Landrover and his travel adventure business. He’s wanted by the CIA. His marriage has ended. He’s broke. He desperately needs to avoid taking an office job.
Fortunately, he is taken on as driver and deputy leader on a trip from London to Johannesburg. Perhaps, this time, things will go smoothly.
One of his colleagues has other ideas — to profit from smuggling. Once again, Greg has taken on more than he expected. With Kirsty, his co-driver, he faces difficult weather conditions, the theft of a tyrant’s bullion, a coup d’état, murder and betrayal.
Can they get their passengers safely to Jo’burg without falling foul of either the CIA or the South African Police?
Based on historical events and inspired by a real-life journey, this story is a combination of travelogue, mystery, thriller and romance.
