Storyline

In Lima, Peru, a local 15-year-old boy tries to sneak into the US embassy at night by jumping from the top of the perimeter wall; a Marine guard challenges him, and the boy fires at the guard, who returns fire and kills him. A strident Peruvian anti-US group stirs up strong feelings and violent behavior against the US citizens. While Harm and Meg investigate, they uncover a number of entanglements and complications; they take part in a shootout and survive it, and they eventually figure out the truth. Written by DocRushing
