After the events of I Was Happy In Shanghai[[1]] the runners gave their stolen goods to Dave the Octopus[[2]] to fence when the heat died down. Finally Dave decided that the time was right, and started the legwork to move some of the goods in Hong Kong. He found a number of reputable buyers, a representative from the British Museum and a long time art Thief, but was approached independently by a third unusual source, a Mr. Cash Money. Suspecting that his network had been compromised, David sent the runners into to finish the deal. In their legwork, the runners discovered and number of discrepancies around Mr. Cash money, and that he seems to be working for a third party. They organize a meeting with him before finalizing their decision. At the meeting, the runners discover that he is a powerful mage, and that he isn't willing to take no for an answer. After the meeting they discover that he's murdered one of their other buyers, the representative from the British Museum, and is trying to kill their other buyer. The team races to the art theif's hotel, to find her security has already been murdered. They manage to save her against heavy opposition from Mr. Cash Money, who tries to escape in the chaos, but is eventually captured and killed. The runners sold the batch of artifacts that they came to sell, but know that their is a third party trying to rob them of what they've rightfully stolen.
