A hard line Russian Army officer reviews the profiles of several former servicemen and selects Luke Brenner for a very special operation. Unknown to Luke, the lady he is flirting with drugs his drink before Luke is flown out to the Bahamas to be brainwashed and conditioned. The next day, Nikki and a very frustrated Peter wait for Luke to make an appearance for their return flight to Paris, but Luke fails shows up. At this time, Alexander calls them with orders to prepare his New York townhouse for Suzanne, who will be attending Columbia. Luke suddenly appears at the Addington townhouse, but his strange behaviour stirs suspicion that something wrong is going on. This sets them on the trail of the Russian major and her assassination plot.
