STORY:
The Saint is in an antique shop in Lima, Peru, when two men are trying to kidnap mine owner Henry Coleman. Of course Simon prevents this. His interest in Coleman is sparked by a painting which was in the shop for cleaning. For his help Templar is invited to Coleman's property. After visiting he finds a badly hurt man who works for Coleman. It's Salter who was the only person who could have tipped off the thugs from the shop. Soon the Saint learns that Coleman is a ruthless Nazi who fled to Peru after WWII.
