But when Chief Superintendent Lomax comes to investigate he finds there is no record of Kepple's birth or any kind of official records, save those of a series of well-planned and brilliantly executed that have taken place in every country of the world. The soul-shattering truth is only suspected by Lomax's young assistant -Inspector Hargreaves- who is ridiculed by his superiors. As the violence escalates it becomes clear that Man has created Kepple after his own image.
