Storyline

Chauvelin's scheme to capture the Countess de Monsants before she can escape to England succeeds and she and her servant fall into his trap. Sir Percy hears about it and hatches his own scheme, rescuing the Countess and her servant from under Chauvelin's nose and smuggling them to England. Outraged, Chauvelin travels to England, planning to kidnap the countess and bring her back to France. Meanwhile, the Prince has hired a Chinese decorator to remodel a wing of the palace, and Sir Percy decides to use the man in his plan to thwart Chauvelin's plot. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com
