Prominent bankers around the world are being found dead, tortured and killed by the vicious psychopath Gregor Volkov.  Derrick Storm is brought in to investigate why and to attempt what he has failed at repeatedly in the past: bringing Volkov to justice.  Joining Storm in his mission is the beautiful Chinese agent Li Xi-bang and his old CIA handler, Clara Strike.  Together they uncover a plot that if put into action, would unleash a chain of events that could ruin not only the United States' economy, but that of the world.
