Eric Winlatter is a “ne’er do well” nephew of a successful printing company owner Ernest Winlatter. His marriage to Cherry is on the rocks. Eric’s work at the printing firm is rather mundane until a small Eastern state “Lalvador”, wanting plates made for their currency, is the target of hostile forces and he is set up by spies. In the meantime Robert Wade “closes in” on Cherry.
