A missing silver Bible and a secret document signed by Mao Tse-tung and Lord Mountbatten extending the Hong Kong Treaty lead the British Secret Service and the Mafia on a race to the Scottish Highlands. Macnee gives a sparkling performance as he gives life to each of the story's characters. His accents, Scottish, Irish, Italian and English, are superb.
