Synopsis for Sandra of the Secret Service: "Resbian Revenge"
Sandra returns home from Gavonia to America via passenger liner. Two Resbian hit-men stalk her, bent on murderous revenge. One night luck is with them; Sandra strolls the deck alone, not far from the rail. They pounce, and attempt to throw her overboard, but a random young man sees the struggle, and dives into it. The scuffle is brief, and both Sandra and her would-be rescuer are heaved overboard. The liner sails ominously away as the two tread water in the cold North Atlantic Ocean.

Alex tells Ruppo, to his great surprise, that it's now time for Ruppo to kidnap the king.

Synopsis for Wing Brady: "The Tunis Smuggling Operation, Part 1"
Captain Chevigny's detachment returns to their main fort, El Harib, with the captured Ali Ben Saad, and the rescued Lynn Harding. In Chevigny's office, smoking cigarettes, he and Wing Brady discuss strategy. The Arabs they've been contending with are armed with machine guns and gas bombs, modern weaponry to which they would have no legal access. Chevigny believes these weapons are being smuggled into Algeria via Tunis, where, coincidentally, Lynn Harding's British father will be arriving to take Lynn back to Europe. Wing Brady's next assignment, therefore, is to accompany Miss Harding to Tunis. He does; they uneventfully arrive at the Hotel Domerich.

The old man leads them to a shallow cave, just as a violent tropical storm starts to roll over the island. The old man has a telescope, and he spots a ship on the horizon.
