Introducing... Ben Molina

A.N.D. Acute Nepali Disorder


'Do you mind if I join you?'

Ben looked up at the beautiful, elegant woman in front of him and stared around the empty tables in the restaurant, motioning to her at the same time to take a seat.Before he said a word, she cleared her throat and made Ben an offer he would never forget for the rest of his life.

'I will pay you one million euro if you can prove that my uncle murdered my father - the King of Nepal."  Before he had a chance to think of a reply the rat-a-tat of an AK47 spraying bullets all around the dining room, sent everyone diving for cover.  

When Ben looked up to survey the carnage, his mysterious companion had vanished.

'Do you know why you are here?'

Ben didn't, he had been committed to Dundrum Central Mental Hospital for the Criminally Insane because of an unprovoked attach on a stranger in Havana.  But he had no recollection of going to Cuba.

Through patient counselling, he remembered that he was investigating political corruption in Ireland which led him to Madrid where he met and fell in love with a beautiful and enigmatic woman half his age. Together they travelled to Cuba where they played an unsuspecting part in an incredible plot to honour the memory of Ché Guevara which went horribly wrong. A roller coaster of an emotional journey finally brings Ben to learn of a dark side to his character he knew nothing about, to self-loathing and eventual breakdown.
