When Manfred and Gonsalez realize that the police have not only the wrong man, but the wrong murder method, they set a trap for the real killer. A chance encounter on a golf course reveals a plot to eradicate one of the earth & rsquo;s most innocent and necessary creatures, and Gonsalez vows to stop the mad scientist in charge, whatever it takes. With the assassination of Sir Philip Ramon and the war against the Red Hundred years behind them, Manfred, Gonsalez, and Poiccart have settled into lives of scholarship and leisure.

In his honor, and in defense of innocence and integrity, they will act & mdash;swiftly and without remorse.
