Super-star action in unmistakable Ian Fleming-style, exotic locations, beautiful women, dry humour, and a breathtaking climax!

The place is Tehran, where two British agents are sent to investigate the murder of a colleague who was infiltrated in drug circles. By impregnating a large portion of opium with radiation hopes are made to track the cargo to its final destination in Europe, and blow up the world's most powerful drug syndicates.
