Eastern Europe is in chaos as the Soviet-backed system of Communism collapses. But in Czechoslovakia, the population is jubilant. Prague Spring has arrived at last!
But one colonel of the old order plans his escape. He has access to priceless Bohemian museum pieces. Never mind that they belong to the people of this nation. They are to be stolen, and sold to a wealthy South American drug lord, for enough money to set up the colonel for life.
Ah, but Nico DiCapelli is having none of that. His organization, World Designs Ltd., has sent him to an old inn, The Kámen, in the bucolic countryside of Czechoslovakia to shadow the elusive and mysterious Sylvia Duncan, and to intercept the museum pieces. A fine plan, but as it turns out, the countryside is not so bucolic after all. The colonel turns up dead, and suddenly Nico finds himself as the next target.
