STORY:
In a casino in Monte Carlo Simon meets his old friend Bill Fulton. Because he is a professional drummer in a band the father of his fiancé Meryl Vascoe will not let them marry. On the contrary - he does everything to foil every chance for Fulton to get an employment in a band. So Templar bets against Vascoe that his prized art collection will be robbed in the next 4 days. With a burglar proof alarm system and Colonel Latignant on his heels this seems like an impossible task...
