In the hands of experts, dynamite holds few dangers. But in the hands of men determined to use the explosive for their own greedy ambitions, it can - and does - become a dangerous threat to Crane's life.
When Julie Lamont disappears, Crane and Orlando are asked to find her, but their investigations lead them to believe that the girl has been abducted - and most likely murdered. Neither are ready for the surprises in store.
A new threat to Crane's existence arrives in Morocco - a man brought from the mainland to execute our hero. It appear that Crane's smuggling activities have made him enemies - one of whom wants him dead.
If it hadn't been for the waistcoat, Crane wouldn't have become involved in the death of a man found in the desert. He did become involved - and now he's running for his life from a band of men intent on killing him.
