According to HA #144: "Solomon is now operating in Java, and while respected by many, he doesn’t seem to have the same old network of agents as before. But involved he is. He engages an American to assist a woman who has taken over her late brother’s spice plantation. A schemer is after the plantation for unknown reasons, and a Chinese friend of the brother aims to prevent this schemer from succeeding. Will the American succeed, and will we learn what is behind it all? We also get Chinese secret societies and pirates mixed in, as well."
