NB2: The New Zealand File and How I Met Myself are our stories for this year (both with Audio CD). The first book is about a British spy, Ian Munro, who was suddeny called to a secret meeting in New Zealand. He senses that he is being followed. Who's following him? And why is the coded information he is given so secret that others are prepared to kill for it? Can Munro escape and crack the code?

How I Met Myself  opens on an icy winter's evening in Budapest. John Taylor is on his way home from the office when a man runs into him and knocks him over. The man turns to say sorry and John is amazed at what he sees: the man is John's double. The double rushes away but leaves no footprints in the snow. Over the next year it becomes clear to John that the meeting was no accident and that his double has a very important message to give him.
