Storyline

Danny finds himself in a deadly situation when a dying parachutist chains him to an attaché case, containing secret information which the British government are anxious to obtain. Not only does the head of MI6 mistake him for a renegade C.I.A, agent but X-rays of the case show that it contains an electronic device which will cause it to explode unless unlocked with a key. Brett tries to locate the key whilst Danny evades 'Franz Schubert', an unfriendly European also after the attaché case. Written by don @ minifie-1
