Before he was the ineffectual Captain Klink of Hogan's Heroes, Werner Klemperer runs a music school in San Francisco. He contacts the Checkmate team because he has good reason to believe that one of his teachers Richard Conte has someone looking to kill him.
He does but not because he's a bad music teacher. Conte, his wife Signe Hasso, and Klemperer are all exiles from eastern Europe where their unnamed country is now a Soviet satellite. In the basement of their school these folks are turning out a lot of anti-Communist literature and Conte is an exile of some repute now under an alias.
There is someone out to kill Conte, but politics are a secondary consideration.
No more do you hear from me on the story, but it would be wise to remember that paradigm from The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance about when the legend becomes fact print the legend. A lot of folks have very vested interests in legends.
