And he'd hoped, by rigging their database to make sheep his one responsibility, that he'd got SOS sewn up. But it turns out Belugastan is more fun than he'd thought, not least due to its colourful head of state, Vinnie Jones lookalike Tim the First who, desperate to obtain foreign currency for his kingdom, has invented the argali as a lure to cash-rich game hunters, props courtesy of his friend Erik's motorbike and his mum's sheepskin coat. But when the hunters include a mad Texan millionairess and her gun-crazy sons Hubba and Bubba, Dominic and Tim discover that chasing wild sheep can be a very hairy business indeed...show more
