A South American adventure. A trip to die for.
Colombia 1994. 150,000 people have been 'disappeared' and two young adventure-seeking backpackers are about to be added to the list.
'We were going to be killed.
A pair of rich-country passports?
The clothes that we were wearing?
They didn't know about the silver.
Or about the money I had hidden on me.
But of course, they'd be finding it.
A little bonus.
Once we'd stopped struggling and become silent.
A glint as the knife blade moved.
2.8 seconds of real-time left.
Big... deep... breath.'
