Lissi and the Emperor Franz are a dashing couple in a dazzling world. A world so wholesome and harmonious, some of us might find it almost unsettling. Everything is perfect. They have money to burn and enough chocolate truffles to play golf with. Occasionally, they have some governing and some representing to do, but it's pretty much all good in Lissi and Franz's world. Until dark clouds begin to loom on the otherwise blissfully blue sky, because Lissi, the Empress, has been abducted. Immediately, albeit without a trace to follow, the ever so fearless Franz, accompanied by his field marshal and his overbearingly royal mother, sets out in hot pursuit of the kidnappers.
