In the midst of all this tumult, France sends its top spy to Africa to help out President Bamba, whose re-election is threatened by rebels led covertly by his young wife! This mission is trickier, more treacherous, and more torrid than ever. And OSS 117 must, for the first time, team up with a young rival with considerable assets: the up-and-coming OSS 1001. Replacement, partner or competitor?
