My second book was written in response to all the emails I got from people wanting to know what happened next – both of them! As it happened, my life had been rather eventful since getting back from Ecuador, as I tried (and failed) to find world fame on TV, tried (and failed) to become a sailor, and tried (and failed) to join the army.

And yet – what can actually go wrong?

This is Tony James Slater – the man who was convincingly
mauled by a domestic cat.
And to make things worse – he’s not alone…So batten down the hatches! Lock up your power tools! And
for gawd’s sake turn the electricity off.
Because that idiot from Ecuador is back.
And this time, he’s brought the whole family…
