The body was dragged out of the English Channel in the nets of a local fishing boat. After six weeks on the seabed, weighted down with seventy pounds of chain, there wasn't a lot left of gangland boss Harvey Preston - but what there was made Paul Chavasse's stomach turn. Special Branch had handed the case over to 'The Bureau' - that little-known branch of British Intelligence that handled the sort of business no one else wanted to touch. The last time The Bureau had been called in, Chavasse had spent six months in three of the worst gaols in Britain, not to mention nearly getting his leg blown off. But that was nothing compared to this case - a case which was almost as delicate as it was dangerous.
