With the help of the English police, Interpol and a sexy undercover police officer in Paris, he continues his reconnaissance and pursuit of Donald, back and forth across the English Channel. One by one, the players are brought in and broken down, but not before they leave a trail of disaster.
Underpinning the suspense are tales of romance for Ben and Mary, Katie and Georgina.
The interactions of the characters and the storyline result in an exciting, unpredictable, and surprising finale.
