Red-haired private detective Lee Hardy is hired to impersonate a young woman kidnapped and held for ransom in Banff, Canada. The money is excellent, the resemblance uncanny, the necessary physical changes acceptable, but the damage is far higher than Lee likes. She is paired with Dillin Gilmer, a fifteen-year-old relative of the kidnap victim, whose expertise in the ways of death makes Lee almost as uneasy as being around the 'twerp,' as Lee calls her. The 'twerp' has motives and goals beyond rescuing her family member, however, and Lee is one of those goals. 'All' of Lee. With her erstwhile partner slavering over her, Lee walks on stage against a small army of dedicated neo-Nazis led by former Hitler Youth Albrecht von Zwergheim, owner of Chateau Gemultlich, a popular and prestigious resort. Even with two of Dill's cousins as backup, Mounties willing to look the other way, and the very large Rudolf von Mannteuful--who knew which end of an axe to hold onto--Lee has her work cut out for her. The odds are long. To make matters worse, old Albrecht quickly realizes exactly what Lee is, and he has wanted that immortal blood for over sixty years, after surviving the fall of Berlin.
'The Prisoner of Zenda' had it easy.
