About this cache
Its difficult to say much about this cache as I don't want to give the game away, to which end I would ask that you don't disclose aspects of the cache in your log... You should not expect to be able to complete this in a single trip. You may need special equipment for certain stages. Do not attempt any aspect which you do not feel comfortable with, remember to cache within your limits. Please don't drop off bugs/coins.

For many years Tetsuo had led a double life. He presented himself as a well educated batchelor working in the city, his life seemed the epitome of success. He owned a large house with some land as well as several expensive cars.

What most people didn't see were the murky links to the underworld which remained hidden behind the ivy covered walls of his property, and it was these links which were about to become his downfall. In an illegal diamond deal turned sour the Yakuza were rumoured to have put a large price on his head, but even more pressing was the fact that Interpol were fast closing in on him following an organised crime sting which had been years in the planning.

Favouring keeping his cool over losing his head Tetsuo knew he had to make good his escape, and that would mean travelling light. Time was short, and the note you found tucked beneath the windscreen wiper of your car was the last you heard of Tetsuo before he disappeared off the radar.

What has happened to Tetsuo? What happened to the merchandise?

Tetsuo's note has given you the upper hand for now, but Interpol and the Yakuza are hot on your tail. Can you stay ahead and locate the goods before they do?
