The newspaper 'La Zona Vida' of 17 August 1992, has a page one headline shouting, "Lugarteniente Enrique Villas - el asesino de San Remus?" The question mark is a bit rhetoric, as the voice off narration explains that the authorities of El Salvador presumes the young officer is the leader of 'La Mala Sombra', the right-wing death squad operating in the country. He escapes from custody, crosses Mexico, and enters the frontier city of Nogales, between Mexico and the United States. When he is making phone call to his wife Serena, he is intercepted by an armed man, they fight, and Villas ends up killing the man with his own gun - only to discover he was a Mexican policeman, Luis Diego. Mexico issues an international bounty for Villas, and Reno Raines gets on the case. By following Serena, he is able to catch Villas rather quickly, but so are a group of man in a 4x4, who shoot at them from afar. They escape that, and a second attack even within a convent's walls. Reno realizes that his target may not be the butcher the Latin press of Nogales presents him as, and accepts that Villas is a man with a case similar to his own - a former police officer who discovered corruption, and who got framed by his corrupt colleagues for crimes he didn't commit. Gomez and other officers are the men on the hunt - and for a prize more valuable than the US$ 100,000 put on Villas' head.- Written by Artemis-9
