|Good morning, Mr. Phelps. The woman you're
looking at is Riva Santel, widow of the late president of San Cordova. Riva has
always been the actual power behind the throne and she arranged to make herself
the focus of an intense personality cult. The people of San Cordova have been
systematically propagandized into revering her face and name. In seventy-two
hours this man, Deputy Premier Tomas Avilla, plans to announce free elections.
Before then, however, Riva intends to make a televised speech in which she will
announce her takeover as dictator of San Cordova. Your mission, Jim, should you
decide to accept it, is to stop the coup planned by Riva Santel, and to make
possible free elections in San Cordova. As always, if you or any of your IM
Force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your
actions. This tape will self-destruct in ten seconds. Good luck, Jim.
