Whilst in Monte Carlo the Saint saves the life of Fallouda, the ex-king of Fedyra. Fallouda tells him he aims to return to power by raising money by selling the jewellery of his wife, Queen Adana. The Saint and Adana set out to collect the jewels, the journey being initially icy as the queen is the daughter of a London bus driver and feels the Saint should give her more respect. Having warded off one attack the couple obtain the jewels but on the way back to meet Fallouda their car breaks down. They are offered a lift by a sweet old lady who invites them in for tea - tea which she has drugged because she too is after the queen's jewels. Will the SAint be able to deliver the queen's ransom?
