While White’s team closes in on an elusive heroin smuggling operation, a prominent television executive reports that her twin teenage daughters have been abducted. The high-profile case is assigned to White, who must now divide his attention between the kidnapping and the heroin sting operation.
That leaves little time to console his one-time lover, Connie Cleghorn, when she returns to the UK to take her mentally ill brother back to Florida for treatment. In stark contrast, his father is diving deeper into a heady love affair of his own—forcing White to consider whether his inability to maintain a lasting relationship is due to his job or to his own shortcomings.
The two cases—and relationships—threaten to spiral out of control towards conclusions that are sure to surprise.
