Nick and Amanda are approached by a frightened reporter who claims that political adviser Vladimir Rankov is a traitor who is trying to extend a civil war in his country for his own financial gain. The reporter, Tim Helfet, asks that Nick and Amanda break into the embassy and steal Rankov's computer so that he can be exposed, but when they get there they discover that Rankov is an immortal who Amanda has crossed swords with before, and that the reporter may not be telling them the whole story.
