The death of a gangster draws super-spy Paul Chavasse into a breathtaking new adventure on the high seas by one of the true masters of modern thriller writing, the bestselling author of Midnight Runner and The Keys of Hell. Weighted down by chain, the body of gangland boss Harvey Preston was dragged out of the English Channel in the nets of a local fishing boat. British intelligence suspects a connection with a modern cross-channel smuggling ring. But as undercover agent Paul Chavasse embarks on what will be one of the most dangerous cases in his extraordinary career, he soon discovers that this is no small-time operation -- and the ruthless men behind it will go to any lengths to protect their precious cargo.
