By now aware of the permanent solutions favoured by Josh when faced with failure, Harry has no option but to ignore these conditions and employ the dubious Dr Bargee to rectify the situation. But finds his troubles have begun.
Harry had never been a jeep person at the best of times, but as this one lurched, rolled and clawed its way through the jungle quagmire that served for a road, he felt sorely tempted to shoot both Ling Fu and the soldier driver. The motion made him sick enough without having to inhale the greasy clouds of local cannabis that blew back over their shoulders into his face.

They were already an hour overdue and by now Harry was suffering from cramp and an itching crotch, which he gloomily presumed was the onset of prickly heat. God he hated money! The jeep hit a boulder or dead buffalo and plunged abruptly like a roller coaster fairground ride. The AK smacked into Harry's nose with the force of a swinging croquet mallet and the blood streamed. "Stop," he yelled hysterically, "Stop this bloody heap this very minute or I swear I'll shoot the fucking pair of you!" He punched futile fists at the soldier's helmet
