Robert Cubittabout this book: When did working with a TV company become an invitation to be a detective and to risk life and limb?
Andy Mirren gets the job of Liaison Manager between the Moses Odama Foundation and Metro TV, the production company that produces their annual telethon. Andy thought his life would be one of rubbing shoulders with celebrities and hobnobbing with the glitterati. How wrong he was.
He soon discovers that not all the money raised goes to help the starving people of Africa. Much of it seems to go to the oh so greedy staff at Metro TV through a series of scams, fiddles and downright fraud. Andy decides to do a little bit of detective work in order to prove it.
In the meantime, however, he has to look after a selection of prima donnas, wannabees and idiots as they carry out location filming in Africa. With runaway teenagers, ivory poachers and kidnappers to deal with, Andy has a lot on his plate, plus a growing infatuation with the glamorous Charleese Morgan, Queen of the Country Music scene.
Will Andy survive to expose the wrong doing at Metro TV? Or will the people he has to deal with silence him before they can be exposed?
Inspired by a bit of "what if" thinking while watching a well known charity telethon.
