Swiss antiques and arms dealer millionaire Sebastian Ranner is ambushed in Hollywood and shot. Hetty claimed the case from LAPD because his black book will be the envy of US and foreign secret services. Indeed Germans, French and others will stop at nothing. Ranner's interior decorator and secret gay lover Frederick Harbin is a key target. Hetty concentrates on a man from her own active past. Written by KGF Vissers

Marty Deeks: You know there is a bright side to this. If these guys are interrogating Sander Lee, it suggests they're still looking for something.
Special Agent Kensi Blye: He's right. Maybe they didn't find Sebastian Renner's little black book.
