Storyline

By pure luck, Annie survives a bumbled handover in Venice and faces moving out of her sister's home. Jai asks his frat mate Cameron to be summoned in the normally already closed investigation, which stirs his father Henry Wilcox to work all his connections. Xabier Etxarte, the sexy Basque restaurateur Annie has a mutual crush on, is the brother of recently released ETA terrorist Gorka, so she's ordered to stay around, whatever that takes.
