The appearance of a distressed old girlfriend triggers a concerned response. Chloe's new husband, Stefan has mysteriously disappeared while holidaying in Germany.
Brad plays the Good Samaritan and steps up to help. An intricate web of lies and deception greets Brad's attempts to unravel the events leading up to Stefan's disappearance. It appears nobody is telling the truth, all knowledge of Stefan's immediate past appears to have been erased.

A reluctant Jefferson is forced to recruit Brad to assist in locating Stefan but he is not about to disclose the true nature of the operation.

Brad's close ties with Angel see him thrust deeper into a cauldron of espionage and danger.
