In San Francisco, West and Gordon foil an assassination attempt on President Grant. An inspection of the weapon used reveals that it was stolen in one of several recent raids on government arms depots. Grant promises to remain in a safe place, though only for 36 hours, and the agents go off in search of the assassins. The trail leads to Jubilee, CA, home of a monastery famous for its wine and brandy. It soon appears that the monks have started up a slightly less legal sideline...
