What do missing Romanov Czarist Jewels have to do with Mike Angel private eye? Mike gets between remnants of killer White Russians and Soviets after tripping over a triple murder case he's warned not to investigate by the new Portland Police Chief. Along the way he tangles with the nastiest female he's ever met, one who loves to torture innocents with a diabolical copulating machine. A bizarre rescue, shootouts, bodies galore and several trips to Southern Oregon frame this incredible case. #17: Adult language and situations, set in 1976.
