David Ong is a sports journalist employed by a small, provincial newspaper. Now in his thirties, he feels that his career should be moving on. He persuades his editor to switch his role to that of general journalism in an attempt to move up the professional ladder. Early in his new doctrine, circumstances force him into hastily buying a small, tatty van. It is a vehicle that was previously owned by criminals and was sent to the auction house in error. Dave discovers cocaine hidden in empty seed packets behind the lining in the van. Along with his brother Dick, who is a detective inspector, the duo attempt to trace its trail. Starting at a garden centre, it leads Dave to a UK port where, attempting to hide from the villains hot on his trail, he gets inadvertently transported to Morocco by boat. 

The situation in Morocco escalates into something far more sinister and world-threatening than the initial drug empire that he was investigating. His brother joins him and later on, MI6 are also involved. A tactical game of ‘cat and mouse’ develops as a battle between good and evil ensues. 

The story has many unexpected twists and turns and terminates with a life defining assessment. 

Alan Clarke was born and bred in London. A qualified design engineer, he spent the latter part of his working life as a technical author in the nuclear industry. Now retired, and living in the picturesque Lake District of England, he devotes his time to fiction writing and riding classic motorcycles.
