The story is moving towards the end, getting more interesting also. By chapter twenty-three of American Spy, Wilkinson reveals how Marie and Thomas got intimate at the hotel room, thereby, Marie conceiving her twin sons. Meanwhile, Marie has come to Ghana to inform Thomas about Ross and Slater’s plot to kill him (Thomas). Shockingly, Thomas would rather die than give up on his political views.
“I’m not afraid of death, only if not having done enough of having failed out of laziness. I’m prepared to fight until the end against that,” he says (248).
