You can bend copper. All it takes is a little heat, a touch of persuasive muscle. But can you bend a poisonous fish?

Drug barons and international operators move in on the Apple Isle for what look like easy pickings. Detective Inspector Franz Heineken - aka Pufferfish - is busy tracking a series of top-drawer break-ins, when he is assigned to a government narcotics taskforce.

When its surveillance operation goes spectacularly and embarrassingly wrong, it is Heineken - weary, disaffected, and hankering for a seaside retirement - who looks a likely candidate for corruption. Enemies inside and outside the Force clearly have him in their sights. But they, like Pufferfish, fail to take into account the unknown X and Y factor.
