It's 1970s London, and Glaswegian Colin Grant is finally free. After four years at Her Majesty's Pleasure, he needs to make up for lost time. But when his firm's next robbery goes badly wrong, he knows it's time to move on - fast.
In Africa, Colin finds a new way of life and new friends. But, as he soon discovers, it's a land of unbelievable and almost irresistible riches. And all he has to do is work out how to fly a planeload of gold out of the country without anyone - especially Major Judas Akaba - finding out.

Written from the 'criminals' view point.
Surprised, but on reflection it could have had a stronger ening.
The various accents.
Worth reading, I enjoyed it.
"Worth a listen"
Great story even if factually questionable in some parts (Kotoka Airport to Cape Coast in an hour?)
Joe Dunlop brings good dramatisation to the work and can perhaps be forgiven for coming unhinged at the pronunciation of local nouns. He gets 3 stars for making certain characters sound Vietnamese/Thai instead of Ghanaian
all round, time and money well spent on this book.
