The physical challenges are difficult enough, but the actions and attitudes of his new colleagues from the secret world confront and surprise Gideon at every turn. Can Gideon solve the mystery of the helicopters, and survive? And will he embrace a new life as a spy, or has he strayed far beyond his comfort zone?
