Synopsis

Patrick Steele is an accountant with training in a variety of physical skills. He has made himself a self-styled Robin Hood available to right the wrongs of society using his skills as an accountant and a man of violence.
The Gurentai, a more benevolent sub-group of the Japanese Yakuza, set Steele up with a Swiss bank account with sufficient remuneration to purchase an empty factory unit and set it up as a training facility and garage for him. He also is to follow Aikido training to hone his skills in hand-to-hand combat and to adopt the spiritual attitudes of the Gurentai. This is after a successful earlier association in which Patrick helped out the Japanese with a ‘problem’.
After persuading his Japanese companion, Takuo Sumisu, to become involved, he also elicits assistance from the German and French secret services. There then ensues a variety of actions that take Patrick and his Japanese allies across Europe and eventually from the south of England to the eastern seaboard of the US before returning to the UK.
In an earlier encounter with the Gurentai, Patrick had met a girl with whom he had a relationship. That girl is super ceded by Naomi Kobayashi but in the line of work they are involved can they reasonably expect to have a ‘normal’ relationship?
After the excitement of racing across Europe and the US, Patrick is forced to involve two of the more extreme English political parties in an effort to disrupt the activities of the USAF on English soil. Their actions take them in to Scotland where the CIA is discovered in clandestine operations.
Have the efforts of Patrick and his cronies been enough to drive a rift between the USA and the UK? Discover the outcome in ‘The 51ST State’
