Roland Britten was an amateur steeple-chase jockey and an accountant by profession. But on the morning of March 17 he was following neither pursuit.

On that morning he woke up and found that he couldn't move his hands.

And when he tried to sit up he banged his head on something.

He also could not see. And all he could hear was the noise of an engine, very close by.

He finally decided he was lying in the dark, tied to a generator.

But why? And where? And by whom? And what would happen next?
