A British spy enlists an expatriate tailor to learn of the United States' plans for the Panama Canal, with explosive consequences.

British spy Andy Osnard, expelled to Panama after an illicit affair with a well-placed official's mistress, grows obsessed with ex-con-turned-tailor Harry Pendel on account of his ties to some of the South American republic's biggest and most powerful criminals and politicians.
