Jim pulls a "James Bond" letting himself be captured so he can become beholden to arms dealer Armand Anderssarian who can get Jim released. A classic start to an IMF con.

But there's a wild card in the deck; Anderssarian's ditsy mistress who is jealous of the attention he's giving Dana and has a knack for doing the wrong thing at the worst time. Written by David Foss
