Feral former soldiers, reporters with an agenda, cake-obsessed studio execs with a grudge, international criminals all work their way into the mix as the band hurtle from one improbable incident into another. All they want to do is meet their deadlines, but it seems that everyone else is out to stop it happening.
Can the band get the album recorded on time? Will it ever get released? And what will happen as their upcoming tour approaches? With friends and enemies in the most unlikely places, events unfold in a way that could only ever happen to Cold Steel.
