Amie : Amie, the world’s most reluctant spy is back. Amie is assured that her next assignment will be easy and very safe. How could a safari camp in the African bush along with the President and international representatives from several countries possibly be dangerous? She has no choice but to do as they say.
Simon has flown back to England for a brief meeting and then disappears. Amie has no idea where he is.

Amie now has two lives to save and faces a bleak future on her own.

She was playing for time and hoped he’d give her some space while she considered what to say and how to react. “
