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.

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.

Wait for me.
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.
