Benito Alfieri is expanding his empire. He has a new market in Central Asia, his abalone market keeps growing, his nephew Dimitri is doing a surprisingly excellent job and other than the regular Hout Bay irritations, the world from his office is looking good.
Or so he thinks.
When small problems arise, he resolves them his way – kidnappings, torture, murder, and corruption make them disappear and so long as business keeps booming, and his empire keeps growing, he’s happy.
But even a happy Benito Alfieri is a very dangerous man.
Dimitri Alfieri makes the mistake of allowing himself to be conned out of a large sum of money, all because he is desperately looking to pin his misfortunes on “those Hout Bay people.” When a chance conversation with his abalone poaching colleague Cesar Quevedo points him potentially in the direction of the person who stole from him, it sets him on a path of revenge. That’s when the real Dimitri Alfieri emerges.
One who is not to be underestimated.
Thanks to the software genius of Dallas and together with a new alliance, “those Hout Bay people” have adopted a new strategy and in between rebuilding muscle cars, they take the fight directly to Benito Alfieri. It’s a dangerous move that will either see bloodshed visiting Hout Bay or will take a massive chunk out of Alfieri’s empire.
The unexpected arrival of Alfieri’s daughter from Colombia adds an entirely new element to the Alfieri empire.
