A shipment in Singapore needs to leave port on time. It’s up to Johnny Dollar to make sure the delays don’t run up a bill with the insurance company. Malaria seems to be keeping the captain and crew out of commission. Is it just a misfortune of being in the tropics, or is there any reason to suspect fowl play? Johnny tracks down leads to uncover murder, and threats of danger. When he snoops a little too closely, those threats explode in his face.
Johnny isn’t put off, and is soon back on the exotic streets to find connections to the steamship line. A soft spoken dame seems to be at the center of all the shootings, will Johnny learn anything from her?
Has he come face to face with the mastermind of the conspiracy? Has Johnny found the detail it’s going to take to outsmart the crazy troublemaker, and take him down? The bodies aren’t through piling up as Johnny closes in on his man.
