The cobalt-rich Arab country of El Hari is on the verge of civil war and must stay united to prevent invasion. The best hope of stability is to restore The Bey, in exile in Rome, but he is reluctant to leave his playboy life-style - Sharron knocks him out so that she and Craig can fly him into El Hari. A wireless operator at the landing stage warns the Bey's enemies of his arrival, and the journey is continued in a truck across the desert. The Bey is shot by a sniper and tribesmen host the trio but when the Bey learns that Said, his supposed aide, has paid them to kill him, he resolves to resume his rule. The travellers still have to reach the capital, however, and face another attempt on the Bey's life.[2]
