The avengers are called in when a 60-year old general is killed in a 'chicken run' motor-cycle accident and another officer, having fallen whilst trying to scale St Paul's cathedral, is murdered in hospital whilst under the care of Dr Long. They discover that they were part of a group of disgruntled military men, members of a secret society of the Black Rose, giving themselves code-names based on Greek gods. Bored with peace-time they engage in dangerous and illegal activities and Steed and Emma must identify their leader before they carry out their next caper, the theft of the Crown Jewels.
