Nels had read about a clandestine social club that met at cloistered resorts, hotels, castles, private islands, and assorted lairs. When an ambiguous ad announces a meeting of The League of Uncommon Gentlemen, he quickly attends, only to be drawn into a mysterious search for $50,000. What follows is a curious and unpredictable road trip for five longtime friends who declare bourbon the Booze of Contemplation, tea the Secret of Mornings, and Persian blues a Weapon of Hypnosis. Unraveling clues to the hidden treasure, they imagine a girl they first saw playing a flute in a quarry to be following them. Coincidence or trouble brewing? As shrouded secrets unveil, it becomes a surprising and heart-stopping race to the finish.
