Martin's brother is in a Venezuelan jail, charged with the murder of a fisherman.
Leaving Ugly Bill in charge of their freighter in Trinidad, he heads to Cumana to prove Tim's innocence. Met at the airport by a mysterious and gorgeous woman lawyer willing to pay him to leave the country without stirring things up, he learns that there are forces at work who want Tim convicted. The local police are content with their suspect and the local boss of organized crime in Cumana has an abiding and sinister interest in stalling the investigation. None of them are pleased with Martin poking around and when someone brutally murders his brother's girlfriend right after Martin meets her, he becomes a suspect in her death.
A vicious gringo, called Highball, has decided that Martin knows where some missing drugs are hidden and he will stop at nothing to get them.
It’s a good thing Ugly Bill is on his way to help.
