In is an international
adventure story. It is about a man's quest to unravel the mystery
of the dark, secret identity buried inside him. His journey begins
when he wakes up beside a beautiful, young woman on a deserted, North
African beach in the Arabic country of Battilyia.
|Unfortunately, he has
amnesia and she has a knife protruding from her chest!
He is aware of an inner voice,
which can control his actions providing him with a sixth sense.
Despite this he is still imprisoned by the local militia and sentenced
to be executed for the murder of the young woman. However, he shares
a cell with a Spanish smuggler, whose intimate knowledge of the
gaol, coupled with the inner voice's ruthless instincts, enable
them to escape captivity and flee Battilyia.
In Spain, he begins the search for his identity. The discovery of
a large quantity of banknotes, a cache of weapons and five passports
of differing nationalities, each with his picture in them, strengthen
his fears that he is an assassin or an international terrorist.
Further clues lead him to Zurich, where he discovers that he is
a Swiss banker called Andreas Gustav, and then to London, where
he finds irrefutable proof that he is also a Scottish journalist
by the name of Cameron Stewart. Highly improbable, but unfortunately
well substantiated by everyone and everything he encounters in both
In an attempt to solve his multiple
personality disorder, he travels to Cameron's birthplace in Troon,
Scotland and uncovers more startling revelations. Things don't look
promising for the simple solution he craves. Andreas/Cameron just
wants to be an ordinary guy with ordinary problems, but the evidence
is stacked against him.
He has vivid memories of two mothers and two childhoods; As Andreas,
his wife is a media mogul's heiress, who lives with her lesbian lover,
and his secretary is a nymphomaniac, who can't type or spell; As Cameron,
his best friend is a Glasgow gangland crime boss, and his house has
a hidden room containing enough weapons to start World War III; And
last, but definitely not least, somebody is trying to kill him!
So when he discovers that his biological father is an American recluse
with powerful underworld connections, who has recently been kidnapped
by Arab terrorists, he has a simple choice.
Either he can check both 'himselves' into the nearest lunatic asylum,
or he can try to rescue his father and solve his identity crisis.
