It’s 1941 and the last days of war in Italian-occupied Ethiopia. A small Italian arms convoy is destroyed in an air attack and its sole survivor, Major Umberto Mancino, stumbles across a load of gold bullion hidden in one of the lorries. He seizes this once-in-a-lifetime windfall and hides the fortune in hopes of cashing in once war is over. Fates collide and he gets orders for a covert operation: hiding two beautiful Bugatti automobiles brought to Africa on Mussolini’s orders. Not allowed to fall into enemy British hands, the clock is ticking and absolutely no witnesses to the hideout will be tolerated.
The task is achieved with the help of Captain Silvio Falone, but ends in bloody horror and the two officers in British prison camps. Some 30 years later, their hidden fortune beckons them back to Ethiopia. The ensuing recovery is daring and full of suspense.
