The book starts off with two agents of the Salesman, along with their pilot, flying to Cayo Esqueleto island to sell General Sarov a box of highly destructive uranium. Upon discovering about their attempt to blackmail him, he changes the position of the runway causing them to crash just before they could leave and be eaten by crocodiles.

He accepts after much persuasion, eventually capturing the culprit -- a member of the Big Circle triad.
