Hannie leads a double life, one as a wife and mother in a Devon manor house, and the other as an International smuggler.
In this sharp and witty pastiche of the worlds of John Buchan and Rider Haggard, our heroine brings back cures for cancer from the Brazilian jungle, takes a small child across war-torn Chad, and steals the vital papers which restores a Black family's rights to their Caribbean island.
Still, it's not all glitz and glamour for our heroine; all it takes is one wrong move and Hannie risks losing everything: her family, her country home, her lover, and even her life.
