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.
