Seventeen-year old Matthew Thwaites is trapped snooping in his father’s study when his father returns home unexpectedly with two strange men. He hides under the desk, and is horrified to see his father gunned down just inches away from him.
Given an opportunity to flee, he does so, but finds himself framed for the murder.
Alone, and powerless, he hides out at a busy airport, where he discovers a police manhunt has been initiated with him as their target. His appearance is such that he is mistaken for a girl. Given the idea, he makes the most of this, and goes whole hog into the deception, becoming Monique, his French cousin. He manages to find an ally in an officer investigating corrupt police officers, and together they try to piece together the puzzle.
He is then pitched into an international roller coaster ride involving terrorists, corrupt police and double agents.
But Monique is twice the person that Matthew ever was, and given the chance, she decides to take over.
Everything then gets even more confusing.
