Lester Hodges is back, much to Orwell's annoyance. Gayle shares a class with Lester, and when she is arrested for passing counterfeit money, she calls on Lester for help, who in turn goes to Harry. Gayle got the money from her grandfather, but when he is kidnapped Harry and Lester discover printing equipment in his attic. He is a gifted counterfeiter who has been at it for years. He is being forced to print bogus money for a group of thieves who need a large sum of cash to purchase a shipment of heroin entering the country. The case takes many twists and turns, involving the secret service, FBI and the Mexican secret service.
Did You Know?
If I don't clear myself with Lt. Trench, and if I don't tell him what time, when, and where the shipment of heroin is coming in, he's going to deport me, that's why.
He can't do that. You're an American.
That's how bad it is.
