When confidence in the US dollar breaks down - as the currency for trading oil - the Oil Producing Countries (OPEC) demand a return to the Gold Standard whereby paper currency must be backed by gold. As a prerequisite, they demand an independent audit of US gold reserves. Unfortunately, there is a large shortfall between published and actual gold reserves at Fort Knox and a great deal of the gold intended to fill the gap has been hijacked in transit from the United Kingdom. A year later it is still missing despite a large scale undercover search codenamed 'Operation Lostbox'. Meanwhile, frenzied diplomatic activity around the world has failed to dissuade OPEC from its demands and a deadline for the start of the audit has been set. In the UK, Ian Bailey has seven days to get the gold back to the USA if the shortfall isn't to be discovered and a further, devastating loss of confidence suffered. Of course he's got to find it first. But a tip-off is leading him to a service station on the motorway being touted as 'The Golden Highway'.
