Personal stylist Juste Valadier is called in to turn Tarquin into a more attractive proposition. Also in attendance is a sinister Eastern European hit-man seeking out his victim and willing to eliminate anyone in his way. Add to the mix the Finneran family and blunt businessman, Norman Arbuthnot and a successful event seems a rather distant possibility...
