Bernard Kramer, an ex-Royal Marine bored with civilian life, is approached by a woman who is desperately trying to prove her deceased brother's innocence of child abuse.
He quickly discovers that the 'victim' and her mother were paid for their false testimony by an organisation using the dead man's family business to smuggle drugs into the UK.
After visiting the firm Kramer goes to the nearby home of a former employee,
where he finds two people murdered. He deduces that the organisation operates from Egypt and arranges to fly out as a tourist, but not before two attempts on his life leave him injured and hospitalized.
He recovers and avoids police questioning before travelling to Luxor, where the organisation again attempt to dispose of him, finally imprisoning him far from the city to await interrogation.
Kramer escapes with much difficulty, and drags himself back to Luxor starving and penniless. After securing a loan from a friend he watches the factory where he was taken prisoner, and subsequently abducts one of the management. Under questioning, the captured woman admits involvement with drug trafficking, but will say nothing more until Kramer threatens her life.
Shortly after returning to the UK, Kramer learns of her death - the price of betraying the organisation. He then contacts an old comrade who is now a cocaine addict, and learns that the organisation is known as 'The Sagittarius Ring', and that its UK head is a woman called Christina de Quintana.
Later, Kramer forces her lieutenant to divulge her whereabouts. She is currently in Vietnam attending a conference of organisation leaders.
Walking the streets of Hanoi, Kramer tries to infiltrate the local drug scene. He eventually encounters a pusher who is actually a local police official working under cover. Kramer is strongly advised to leave Vietnam immediately, but senses that the man's true intention is to encourage him to take action where the police cannot.
The Sagittarius Ring are still interested in Kramer, who narrowly escapes death when he is approached by Christina de Quintana. His hotel has become dangerous, and after obtaining the equipment he needs he travels through the jungle to the building where the conference is to take place the following day.
He spends the night concealed on an upper floor, from where he watches the preparations for the forthcoming events. The conference begins, and Kramer hears of the successes of many of the world's most notorious drug traffickers. He is discovered and knows that he must destroy everyone in the room, with so little time left now before he is himself destroyed.
