John Daka, once a detective in the Republic forces, has set up business as a private investigator. Business is slow until a white businessman makes him an offer he can’t refuse. A beautiful woman, Ruth Chandos, is missing, believed kidnapped, and Barton is prepared to pay a lot of money to find her. In the search for Ruth, it seems to Daka that no one is what he or she claims to be. When he finally finds Ruth, Daka also finds trouble of the worst kind.
