'Travel to Pimlico and retrieve a Chinese puzzle box.'
It sounded like a simple enough detail and one which improves when Ira Bowhead’s mission to recover the elusive ill-described heirloom necessitates a trip to Europe and when the opportunity arises to extend his European transients by enticing his employers with what their puzzle box might allude to, Ira Bowhead is only too ready to oblige.
But whilst Ira pursues the prize he can't shake the feeling that he is being shadowed by covert operators with a predilection for theft, knives and guns.
In his bid to recover the prize and transfer it back to England Ira encounters a problem: everybody wants in on his discovery and soon he finds himself struck down by unseen assailants, marooned and shot at by those equally fervent in taking it for themselves.
