With Mike by her side, Nikki purchases a broken antique sewing machine at an auction for $35 that she hopes he will help her refurbish. Almost immediately after they get the machine to Mike's, a man comes and holds Nikki at knife-point, interested in one specific part of the machine - a drawer to its cabinet that Nikki left at the repair shop to get fixed - he holding her hostage until he gets that drawer. Because of the threat to her life, Mike decides not to inform the police, especially as the man seemed rational one minute and totally erratic the next. Mike does however enlist Duke and Li's help. He figures that whatever the drawer contains is worth Nikki's life. They also figure that knowledge is a powerful tool, namely what the man wants with the drawer which may lead to his identity and his and Nikki's whereabouts. Meanwhile, Nikki finds that she has two additional kidnappers, a husband and wife. As she learns more and more about the three, she may decide the best way to help ... Written by Huggo
