While McQaid recovers in hospital, the only lead after the diplomatic DC bombing suggests that his late deputy Caitlin's lover, Georgian diplomat Aleksandre Belenko, is orchestrating everything. Annie goes to Istanbul, where his arms dealer is meeting his henchman for more deliveries, but Mossad friend Eyal Lavine buts her to the punch and executes him. Belenko arrives in person, and stands a confrontation dashingly. Calder meanwhile recruits his ex-lover Sydney to spy electronically on Russian embassy 'client' Mashkov. Written by KGF Vissers
