Escaping to Spain on the day his trial verdict is to come down, he intends to devote himself to his hobby, study of Easter Island. But a detective is on the trail of the missing millions, and Walter's uncle, an established author, is planning to use Walter's life story as a novel. Walter sets out to write his own intriguing autobiography--from his childhood in Hamburg's red-light district to his success in the world of high finance.
