Tom learns that an American assassin has come to Great Britain. This news was not passed on to MI5. Tom doesn't want to compromise Christine, so he is unable to tell Harry what he knows. On Tom's demand Danny and Zoe - without Harry's knowledge - take on the matter but things turn out badly. Tom's strange behavior and the set-up against Tom make him appear suspicious. Zoe and Danny believe that Tom might have gone bad. No one believes him, so Tom has to flee when he is accused of murder and conspiracy. Written by
