Female US president Sheridan is killed from a mile by a masterly sniper who leaves no trace. The vice-president, now having succeeded for a short end of term, is contested by her brother, governor Wally Sheridan, who plays the national insecurity card, as the murder is only the first of series of terrorist strikes. Colonel Amos and his team are given a free hand to track down and catch the killer at all cost. Ross Tanner, who is found by a retired couple and lovingly nursed after a bad fall from a helicopter, comes to realize trough serious amnesia he's probably the sniper. Two teams track him down. La Mangouste's commando team kills the couple, tortures him and anyone known to have crossed his path but looses him again. General Carrington tells him his identity is an elaborate fake to intrude the conspiracy which uses the collateral victims at every terrorist strike, all tattooed with Roman numerals, like his XIII.

The car in which the "sniper" drove away in was a third generation Chevy Caprice. These were made from 1977-1990. In the debriefing, the Colonel states that the glass left behind was identified as having come from a GM vehicle manufactured between 1996-2002. In fact the next generation Caprice was made from 1991-1996. It was the big bubble style that was used by so many police departments before the Ford Crown Victoria became the "crown jewel" of police departments, after GM did away with the line-up. The Caprice line-up was revived in 1999, but for a small car sold in the Middle East. Also the car was identified as a Chevy Impala, which were not even made between '96 and '00 See more
