His thoughts are in turmoil. His eardrums then pop and his stomach churns as the plane comes in to land.

Gripping yet amusing, Spice is an adventure not to be missed.

Ben Bakewell, more commonly known as Cake, would never have imagined that he would be sitting on an aeroplane next to his new Cambodian friend, Ravuth, who at last is going to meet his long lost family and, more importantly, find an elusive plant from which the most wonderful spice is created.
