‘Heileo! Cé atá ag caint? Réics Carló? Is mise Séamus Ó Ceallacháin. Tá rud uafásach tar éis titim amach – tá an Dochtúir imithe!’
When Dr Leon is kidnapped, a brilliant scientist who is working on a secret project for the Irish Government, his old friend Réics Carló is asked to investigate the case. Réics Carló is confident that he will succeed in rescuing Leon – he has never failed to solve a case.
As the case progresses, however, his earlier confidence is shaken. He soon realises that all is not as it first appeared. He will need his wits, his friends and his two fists before the tale is out.
