The teen-aged king of a small central European principality has been convinced, falsely, that his regent intends to harm him, and so he has taken refuge in a neighboring country where he is under the "protection" of strongman General Aragas.

Aragas' hands, so that the IMF can show the boy that Aragas in fact intends to kill him. Written by
