When a member of our own family faces grave danger, there is no limit to the desperate measures we would resort. So it was that Stan Stanton and his partner, Sandra Hawkins, reacted to the situation when they received word that Sandra’s father, Bob Hawkins was being held for ransom by revolutionists in Mexico. Since he is a high- ranking claims administrator at Lloyds Insurance, his captors felt he would invariably bring a large ransom amount to finance their radical cause. In the city of Taxco, Mexico, Father Arturo at the local cathedral was able to pass-on to Stan a lead as to where the revolutionist’s headquarters was located. Since any foreigner’s attempt at penetrating the area would only provide another hostage, the good father passed on a suggestion, as noted in Chapter Four … “But I do know that the Chiapas people are very religious. Now, if someone wearing the Lord’s cloth, such as a priest or missionary were to venture into their territory, they would without question be welcomed as messengers of God. Need I say more? Oh, and if I might add, all padres carry along a “stole,” the ribbon around their necks, in case we are called upon to hear confession. As has been said, if you’re going to play the part, dress the part.”  So Father John (Stan) and Sister Mary (Sandra), in an old pick-up truck, enter Mexico from Guatemala, as missionaries accepting confessions and spreading the Lord’s word in an attempt to rescue Bob Hawkins (who during the rescue becomes Father Dominic). Stan’s plan began with a masquerade deception as described in Chapter Nine … “Bob, here is your frock, put it on and don’t worry if it isn’t a perfect fit. Sandra is going to put that ugly blue make-up on you and will powder your almost gray hair. In the meantime, I have to prepare your resting place, at least for the next couple hours.” I guess at this point Bob didn’t mind anything even if it meant covering his body with cow dung, as long as he was free of his captives and he was heading home. If he only knew what was required of him in the next few hours, he may have preferred taking his chances with the revolutionists or the cow dung. Therefore, with the assistance of explosive diversifications, the purple-blue make-up, and a casket, Bob is transported out of the grasps of the revolutionists, then out of Mexico and brought back to freedom. Stan and Sandra, disprove an old proverbial phrase, “You can fool all the people all the time,” by returning Bob through two countries and several thousand miles back to London.
