The race is on to save Nasir… and Hong Kong! Mortimer is brought to the camp of General Li Hsi, the Chinese warlord, where he is reunited with a seriously injured Nasir. The professor was kidnapped in order to recover the archaeological proof of the general's imperial lineage, but also to repair the Red Wing, a formidable combat aircraft Olrik unwittingly delivered. While Blake moves heaven and earth to find him and protect Hong Kong, Mortimer escapes to go in search of the only thing that can save Nasir: a legendary pearl!

Several months after the end of the Third World War - won thanks to the Swordfishes, the formidable jet bombers designed by Professor Mortimer - England is dismantling its base in the Makran, from which the final counter-attack was launched, and where the surviving airplanes are still kept. But in the shadows, devious schemes are being hatched, and while Mortimer is busy preparing his Swordfishes for repatriation, Blake is in Ireland, where rumor has it the IRA has some sinister plans - and even worse allies.
