Jake has a money problem, a job problem, and a girlfriend problem too. But his best friend has a plan to fix all three. They’ll drive their beat-up campervan to Morocco and fill it with drugs.
Now they’re back. Well nearly back. They’re queuing at border control. Nerves already shot to hell from two thousand miles on the road, countless Red Bulls, and terrifying encounters in the desert with powerful drug gangs. And as luck would have it, today is the day the custom officials have chosen to carry out full searches of every car. Including sniffer dogs. The boys’ plan didn’t really stretch to that.
But even though Jake is sitting on enough hashish to put him in prison for twenty years, his imminent arrest is only his second biggest problem.
Can they somehow sneak through? What happens next? How exactly did they get there?
And what’s really on Jake’s mind..?
