PART I (Think Indiana Jones with a dash of Close Encounters) Comfortably retired from an ordinary career as a commercial artist, James Cagney (No, not the movie star) had settled into a satisfying routine that he thought would last indefinitely but a chance meeting with two young FBI agents changed everything. The memory and talents of this much older man proved to be of great value to their current investigation in that, unknown to them, the will-o-the-wisp they were chasing was more the age of James Cagney and was employing methods and devices of a bygone era to function and cover his tracks.

Its six powerful engines were throttling down as the big wing flaps were lowering. Those inside the plane could hear the whine and clumping noises as the hydraulic motors lowered the over sized landing gear. The landing strip was ill defined and barely adequate but this would be the only time the big aircraft would land at this place. Once those on board completed their business here and the fuel tanks were topped off, it would leave, heading to the west and never return. That was the plan.
