The CIA mourns the murder at home of language professor Ramsay. His agency link was kept secret even for Annie, whom he recommended for recruitment, like many unsuspecting students. His Pakistani widow Safia is furious to learn the same secret, inspiring Annie she must tell her own sister, whom Auggie masterly keeps ignorant by pimping the Smithsonian cover. Safia becomes both suspect and probable target as the murder is ascribed to a Pakistan-based Jihadist group, about whom the professor somehow kept data in an old-fashioned micro dot, so Jai seduces their front charity's executive Rubina Jafari. Written by KGF Vissers
