World War II. Portugal is considered a neutral country, but the capitol is rife with spies and intrigue. Adversaries and enemies come, not just from the cover of its dark alleyways, but from under the lights at the gaming tables of its most famed Casino. Everything is for sale, and everything can be bought. People use whatever they have as currency – art, gold, family jewels, arms, refugees, sex, information… their honor. The story is clear – get what you need, any way that you can.
