U.S. Senator Rhodes asks Mac to help his daughter Chris on the Virgin Islands to get back the diamonds which got stolen by Daniel Sims, the accountant he hired for his African famine charity and got shot himself by his accomplice Catlin, a former mercenary, who runs a hotel and casino on the Virgin Islands. Mac decides to steal the rocks back from his casino's top-security vault, which he plans to infiltrate, for once in Bond style (tuxedo), by cheating and asking his considerable winnings to be stored there. Catlin was warned and spots his tricked dice, but after a daring escape they return by the back-door with an elaborate diversion, at least Mac has learned the stones are not in the official vault but the private one in Catlin's office. However there are more surprises on both sides.
