Private Investigator Penn Gwinn is hired by the control officer of his former intelligence agency to locate a legendary mystical icon called the Aqualene, or The Eye of God, treasured by the Binin as part of the Australian Aborigine heritage. A chase develops which takes him across Baja California in a most unusual chase scene, Mexico and the Australian outback. Many people claim to be his allies, but are they, really? Or do they have their own agendas? The search for the opal leaves a trail of bodies as Penn deals with phony detectives and seductive redheaded agents.
In the chase for the Aqualene, nothing is as it seems.
