Everybody wants Alonso dead. Detective Sergeant Swaby of the Jamaica Constabulary, who has set him up to take the rap for Chin Lee's murder, wants Alonso dead. The powerful but impotent drug baron Leprosini, whom Chin Lee was trying to double-cross, wants Alonso dead. Even Ras Clawt, the magnificently endowed freedom fighter, will kill Alonso if he makes a wrong move. Inoffensive and harmless, Alonso finds himself arrested, kidnapped, shot at, on the run and feigning madness. To cap it all, someone lands a plane on his head. The only way Alonso can hope to return to his pleasantly idle life as night-watchman is to find out the true facts of Chin Lee's death and so persuade Authority to exonerate him.
