The team investigates the kidnapping of 19 year-old Maxim Marianski at a nightclub in Cannes. The crime has all of the earmarks of a professional job: the young man was kidnapped in a packed nightclub and his security guards were shot twice, once in the torso and once in the head. Also dead is Maxim's girlfriend. The victims father, Lev Marianski, is a rich Russian industrialist who had taken the precaution of taking out kidnap insurance on both his son and his ex-wife Caroline. The ICC team is involved due to a virtually identical kidnapping having taken place in Florence just a few months before.
