After saving her from a runaway sports car, Keller and McAllister are invited by a rambling blonde to a black tie garden party hosted by her father, an influential senator. However, the party is crashed by more than just Okasa when a terrorist organization swoops down and kidnaps the senator and a number of hostages in the hopes of trading them for the release of political prisoners. Aided by an old rival/acquaintance, McAllister and Keller must infiltrate the terrorist stronghold and rescue the prisoners before their time runs out. Written by Titus Yorick
