Drugged and kidnapped, he wakes up in a coffin somewhere in Italy, in possession of some earth-shattering information. So begins a deadly chase as he is pursued across Europe in his efforts to make it safely back to London. Can Colin adapt, improvise and change his world view in order to make it back home alive?
