Manhattan, New York. Frank Martin and Caterina Boldieu are posing as an extraordinarily wealthy couple, Brandon and Veronica Miller. With Jules Faroux’s help, the “couple” pass the security checks and are granted access to Mr and Mrs Miller’s bank vault at a high-end bank. They are there to retrieve a handful of diamonds which have been stolen from their current client, and replace them with infallible fakes. Just as the pair reaches the diamonds, Jules spots the real Mr and Mrs Miller arriving at the bank. The alarm is raised. Frank distracts the guards as Caterina makes for the fire escape. Frank becomes trapped on the roof of the sky scraper. In a hair-raising move, Frank parachutes off the roof, landing safely on the pavement below. The team celebrates their success in a bar, when Frank thinks he has spotted Zara Knight, the woman he was in love with who was supposedly murdered in 2011. The pair cannot deny their intense feelings and they sleep together. Afterwards, Zara receives a text message and suddenly decides to leave, clearly frightened. Frank, who spent three years searching for her after she disappeared, is desperate to find out why Zara is so afraid. Unseen, he follows her down and watches her get in a car – the driver of which is Olivier Dassin, the cold-blooded transporter who tried to kill Frank in Crimea. Frank follows Dassin’s BMW and watches the pair meet two men, whom Jules swiftly identifies as arms dealer, Armand Burton and crony, Calvin Pettit.
