Legendary missiles are bombarding the home of Sir Roger Carnifex – Adam, on ceremonial duty in England in preparation for the Yraguay Marine Corps' performance at the Edinburgh Festival, deduces that they are coming from a hidden trebuchet. Eventually Sir Roger confesses that he is being threatened by a sinister Arab organisation called the "Brothers of the Faith". This is in revenge for when he executed assassins during his time as a colonial governor. The Carnifex twins are kidnapped and rescued and Adam lays a trap involving a yacht in order to capture the villains.
