Jasusi Dunya #61
Prominent industrialist Sir Fayyaz Ahmad disappears en route to his vacation home, and returns several days later in a strange delusional state. His granddaughter, the young and beautiful Shakila, approaches Colonel Faridi and Captain Hameed for help. The investigation leads the two detectives through the corrupt, twisted world of the super-rich--their stately mansions, white yachts, and platinum mines--and smack into the middle of a deadly game being played by the notorious American criminal Doctor Dread.
