When Mike was coshed carrying a satchel of money from his firm to the bank, it seemed like a simple case of a pay-snatch robbery. But was it as simple as it seemed ? Was there not something unusual about the nature of the attack on him - something that called for thorough investigating ?

Although Detective Sergeant Manny Gribbon does his best to dissuade Mike and his young detective brother Jim from following up the case, Mike has a personal interest in this one: in spite of Manny Gribbon they are in it - right up to the hilt.
