Arriving in New York from Sri Lanka, political activist, Bela Khan, is in the States to visit her ailing mother, and speak at a political rally. While leaving the rally, assassin, Bhatt Tom, attempts to kill her but misses and kills her personal assistant, Rosemary Shaw, instead. The assassin is killed by her body guard, Gil. Detectives soon discover that it was the body guard, Gil, who planned the exit through the kitchen, to set up Bela for the hit, in exchange for getting his brother off of death row. When he is assassinated while in custody, Logan and Wheeler turn their attentions to members of the the Khan family itself, as possibly being behind the hits, and must figure out who is pulling the strings, and who the real target is before it's too late.
