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 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.
