Fletcher Stryker and his top assistant Sonny Anderson are seconded to the U.S. President’s special committee for International Corruption and Fraud to recover or destroy, a set of almost perfect U.S. dollar printing plates that have disappeared. Their investigations take them to London, England; only to find that their lead, a young Barbadian man named Joe Large, has been brutally murdered. They meet the ‘Englishman’ and their beautiful contact Roberta Campbell and they challenge and uncover the interests of Leonardo Giuliani, the head of the most powerful crime family in Italy, and his son Fredo. Influential, black Lawyer Oliver Sobers and his daughter Bess get involved in the investigation as does Tudor Knight a suburban housewife married to a successful lawyer and has two children. Exceedingly artful she cleverly constructs a double life where she is able to find the love and excitement that is so important to her but it gradually and unwittingly leads her into a web of international intrigue and crime. The story switches from Barbados to England and from America to Italy. At the end it is Tudor Knight who is left to make a crucial decision. Her actions have inadvertently put at risk the lives of her innocent children. To save them she has to sacrifice herself or perhaps make a deal with the devil.
