The shrewd Vasily immediately suspects something is amiss. The murder of the famous inventor is too smoothly arranged.

As it turns out, Garin faked his own death to flee the country. Worst yet, he took with him his latest deadly weapon – the hyperboloid. And with its help, he captured a gold-rich island in the Pacific Ocean. Now, with his endless gold supply and his deadly weapon, Garin becomes a world dictator. Only the courageous revolutionaries led by detective Vasily can resist him now.
