A plague of troubles revolves around Greek Police Director Spyro Roussos. His American opera singer lover, Victoria, is stalked by a professional terrorist. His superior, who plots to become dictator, schemes to replace Roussos with a sadistic crony. The American Ambassador's niece, Marilyn, is kidnapped by an unlikely group and rescued by another mysterious, deadlier group.

Meanwhile, forces try to involve Greece in a Balkan War that will start World War Three. Two men love Marilyn. The Ambassador doesn't like one, Embassy Security Officer Bob Jensen. Marilyn falls in love with Roussos's son with Greek-god-like features, Dimitri, but that can have complications. In this Byzantine atmosphere, Athens is seen in all its splendiferous, but threatened, glory.
