Kek Huuygens is hired to smuggle a suitcase that could change the destiny of Buenos Aires

André Martins remembers Kek Huuygens as he once was: wily, rugged, and desperate. But when he comes to pay his old friend a surprise visit, he finds Huuygens living in one of the most luxurious apartments in Paris. What’s more, Huuygens has a bottle of wine open on the table, for he was expecting his visitor before Martins ever had the idea to come. Kek Huuygens is a smuggler—the best in the world—and smugglers cannot afford to be surprised.

A mutual friend has made a most unusual score: stealing a suitcase full of the original Spanish deeds to Buenos Aires. In the right hands, they are worth a fortune, but first they must be returned to Spain—and only Huuygens can get them there. He will do it as he does everything: with wit, style, and a firm grip on the element of surprise.
