A night takeoff in fog with zero-zero visibility in a venerable old Douglas DC-3 from Ciudad Victoria, Mexico almost ends in disaster for Jay Leicester, his copilot, and three passengers. The reason for the near crash was found to be that the aircraft was overloaded by ten thousand pounds with pure gold plates. The mystery of how and why the gold was on board involves the Mexican Mafia, Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs, the death of a Mexican Governor, an expatriate-biker, and a murder contract on the lives of Leicester and two of his employees and endangers several of his close friends. As the novel moves to its climatic and complex resolution, the reader is once more held fast by the unique art of J.C. Simmons' crackling suspense rooted in a strong perception of reality.
