The Saint is in Washington, DC, when a young woman asks for his help. Her father, a noted scientist, has invented a new form of synthetic rubber. But he has disappeared, and she is under threat. She turns to Simon Templar, who soon finds himself involved in war-time intrigue.
What was most surprising about this story was how much it actually has to say about this year's presidential candidates - it's as though the main villain had decided to run for office. Some things never change.
