A brilliant adventure for any budding journalist to get their teeth into. Ben Maddox is in the cut and thrust world of journalism and when he’s sent off to report from the fragile peace of the Ivory Coast he finds himself in a situation that is more than just dangerous. But can he deliver a story that could be front page news.

Synopsis

Down To The Wire by Bernard Ashley

Just after rescuing the home secretary's daughter from kidnappers, Ben Maddox stumbles across another human interest story. Soon Ben finds himself thrust, full throttle, into an adventure about a child protegee, set against a background of politics and child trafficking - and this time there in no going back.
