By following the trail of the blue bead in Knappers tummy (the form of payment at the Rankin Holiday Ranch at Bowerville-by-the-sea), the slothful, dyspeptic Dover and his long-suffering assistant MacGregor uncover a right-wing terrorist group, masquerading as a harmless stamp club, that deemed Knapper a traitor and killed him. Before Dover belches his way to a wildly improbable conclusion, an infiltrator from Special Branch almost blows the Inspectors cover- the Official Secrets Act impedes the investigation- and Dover, as usual, antagonizes the innocent and guilty alike.
