A collection of the most successful financiers of the US and UK are putting together a diamond trust to better control that trade. Surprisingly, the US government seems in favor of this activity.

Jimmie Calvert is chosen by the Secret Service chief to go undercover to bodyguard the money until the transfer is complete.
