Sandy did die from his condition and Douglas and his mother carried on with their lives. In high school Douglas met a girl named Kelly and they became very close friends doing many activities together. They both spoke loudly for peace and worked with groups to stop nuclear threats and the weapons themselves. After they married they attended the university but all their spare time was spent doing what they could to fight for peace and the elimination of nuclear weapons. They traveled together and saw much of the English countryside and learned much of the history in the area. Douglas met a man who told him about the list of 300 and told him that this mans name was on it. He gave Douglas a copy of the list and told him to safeguard it with his life. Douglas read that this man was found dead in the river. He reported to the police the actions of the preceding night, all but the list. The police took the report but that was the end of anything Douglas knew. He could not get he incident out of his mind.
Kelly and Douglas eventually decided to try to have a baby. They camped out in a peaceful area and enjoyed a good time just before school again began. Kelly went to a peace camp with a friend, Felicity, where they both tried to stop a British submarine from going to sea but instead were placed under arrest. Douglas was beside himself not knowing where Kelly was. He went to the police at the naval base inquiring about Kelly. He was eventually given a story that she and her friend had been killed in the propeller of the submarine as they tried to interfere. Douglas didn't believe this and kept his search going for years everywhere he went. Douglas had met and associated with just a few other men that had connections with the list. Douglas was given the name of Desperate Dan, a name that he would be known by for many years as he moved from area to area until he heard from good sources that Kelly was still alive. This made Dan more determined to find her and his long search continued while he continued his avoidance of the law. By now M15 government men were searching for him along with some very bad men, all of whom he had to avoid staying alive and finding his Kelly.
Gypsies are generally not liked but this is the group he became associated with where he could hide out in the middle of no where, sleep in s tent, and still extend his search for Kelly and the men he had formerly known in connection with the list of 300. Kelly was finally found and she and Dan joined with a bunch of Gypsies that traveled as needed to pick crops, do general cleaning, help maintain farms, and anything they could do and still keep secretive. Harman was the Gypsy leader. He took a liking to Dan and Kelly and started teaching Dan everything about the band of Gypsies, their way of living, eating, earning a living, cash sources, savings from the past for the future, and staying out of trouble with the law. Eventually a very sick Harman turned over the entire group to Dan in every way as Harman had taught him. The running of this band of Gypsies took a lot out of Dan, all the while still hiding from the law.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a very diverse story that kept me guessing all through the book as to what would occur next to the individuals and the collective Gypsies. I highly recommend "Conspiracy of Wolves" and know you will get very engrossed in the story of such interesting people, individually and groups.
