Martin Fenwick was a rich, respected syndicate man; a man everybody loved. Until the day he stumbled onto a deadly secret that sent him on a rendezvous with a bullet that silenced him forever.

David Fenwick, the surviving son, was about to become a man. He wanted his father's killer, and would risk his own life to find him. James Card, bodyguard, sought only revenge, for Martin Fenwick had died in his arms, leaving behind him only one clue: a small package wrapped in plain brown paper. A clue that sent Card on a relentless manhunt across international borders and into the clutches of death

A chance encounter in an Athens bar with war-time flying buddy sets Jack Clay on the trail of the Nawab of Tungabhadra's missing fortune, hi-jacked out of India years before at the time of partition.

Clay badly needed out. This might be his last chance. But there were others whose needs were as great as Clay's. Men and women who were prepared to lie and cheat, murder and maim, to get to the diamonds first
