The very first novel written by Jack Higgins, re-packaged to celebrate 50 years of bestsellerdom. He guesses it's around 3am. Gun runner and occasional smuggler Mark Hagen, hears a scream through the fog. He finds a girl; young, beautiful, trouble. But as Mark Hagen himself said "I love trouble, angel. It makes life so much more interesting." Before long he is hauled into a chaotic chase involving The Red Chinese, and a lot of gold. From feeling he had lost everything to suddenly fighting for his life, Hagen must battle his inner demons and some truly terrifying enemies in a deadly game of power, action and murder.
