Peter Hacket was a casualty of the budget cuts to the UK Secret Intelligence Services (SIS).

Now considered a deniable retread resource, he  contracts out his specialist black services to any organisation or individual who can afford him.

The Mexican  Ruiz crime family owned high quality printing presses to produce adult material which was smuggled to the European market. Times had changed with the Internet so the families financial fortunes faltered. As they did, the Belize drug cartels sort to take over Ruiz established smuggling operation.

Ruiz and his teenage son, relocated themselves to Miami, USA whereupon the boy was despatch off to boarding school where he made potentially exploitable contacts to revive the family fortunes.

On the boys return to Miami a plane was hatched to use the family printing facilities to produce Euros and smuggle them to Europe. Their, with the involvement of a US investment identity stripper, the money would be laundered through the Liberec Austrian Banking connections with whom the family had had a long term relationship.

What Hacket did not know when sent to Austria and then to Miami investigate the Ruiz family and it’s source of income was that MI6 already had a resource within the Liberec Bank and Ruiz home monitoring the Ruiz accounts.

It wasn’t long before Hacket clashed with the MI6 resource and learned about corruptible identity stripper’s laundering activity on behalf of the Ruiz’s.

Reporting back his findings to London, Hacket wasn’t too happy with what he learned nor his instructions what the ‘suits’ wanted him to do. His dilemma was just how many would have to die to bury an 18 million Euros fraudulent operation.
