After British secret agent Michael Hagarty picks up his uneasy friend Jessica at the airport, where she was to meet Grady, she gets caught holding the gun that went off in his fight with a foreign agent during the frustrating hunt for the illusive mystery master-hit-man the Cobra, a fortune goes missing. Haggerty even feeds Grady a false story so he'll pretend she not his aunt. Meanwhile his station chief Lancaster's suspicions are fed by agent Roger Travis, who also tries to turn jailed suspect Jessica against Michael. Furthermore suspicious characters roam around, such as (if they are that) a Chronicle reporter, State Departement special representative Kevin Styles and Miami PD sergeant Joe Santiago. Yet Jessica keeps sleuthing, even behind bars... Written by
