At the airport of the South American republic San Pablo the identical looking bags of Templar and Diane Holbrook got mixed up. In his hotel Simon finds a gun in the bag. Soon Diane wants her bag back and the Saint is drawn into the revolution against corrupt President Alvarez. Diane wants to avenge her father on Alvarez' right hand Victor Lawrence. When she tries to shoot Lawrence Simon prevents that. They have to flee from the police and are rescued by the freedom fighters led by Hortal. They are not ready to overthrow the president yet but the Saint finds an easier way.
