Abstract:

Russian Count Sergius Karamzin and his two cousins, the Princesses Olga and Vera Petschnikoff are happily living the high life in Monte Carlo just after the Armistice for WWI. The only problem is that all three are fakes--swindlers, grifters, con artists--who must continually replenish their cash reserves by finding new marks. They are all adept, but the Count excels as a seducer, then blackmailer, of foolish wives. When the newspaper announces the arrival of a special envoy from the United States to the Principality of Monaco, the Count believes he's found a perfect victim for his latest scheme.
