Objects which Fane has lost are later offered for sale to the United States Government and the young attache is being hunted down by G-men, but Fane has disappeared somewhere in Central Europe. His twin sister, Patricia, organizes an expedition to find him before the Secret Service men can lay hands upon him. For this endeavor she enlists four soldiers of fortune.
