Storyline

Emma Bartlett asks the Saint to guard her father, a scientist who has recently invented a petrol substitute. She is concerned that he may be kidnapped or forced to defect because of his product. After a confrontation with a man who claims to be a secret service agent responsible for the professor's well-being, the Saint runs into the seductive Samantha, who works for the organization Genius Inc. which sells very clever people to the highest bidders. Meanwhile the professor disappears, lured by a fake telephone call to meet up with the Saint, who must rescue him before his kidnappers can take him out of the country. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[first lines]
Simon Templar: [narrating] You'd have thought the reception was for the President of the United States, a movie star, or an astronaut on the eve of man's first attempt to reach Mars.
Simon Templar: [to cab driver] Wait for me.
Simon Templar: [narrating] Ordinarily, I'd have been surprised that a relatively obscure scientist, attending a relatively small conference in a relatively disinterested French resort, could create so much excitement. But this was no ordinary occasion and Professor Edmund Bartlett was no ordinary man.
