But battling demons and ghosts of his own, plus a host of folks eager to close the case, Jimmy finds the investigation more difficult to deal with than he'd expected - until there's another suspicious death. Jimmy doesn't know exactly whom he can trust, especially when confronted with a pretty redheaded reporter from Cedar Rapids who's after a big story.

But General Donovan, head of the OSS, has plans for Charlie that include travel to the Far East in strife-ridden French Indochina. Charlie's sent to Saigon to investigate the death of a lieutenant colonel holding thousands of dollars of diamonds. But as Charlie digs for the truth, he realizes this assignment involves more than the death of one officer. A Japanese police officer and a beautiful, mysterious Vietnamese nationalist help him in his investigation - until he's kidnapped and spirited away to a prison 800 miles north in Hanoi. Then an old comrade from the war comes to his rescue - or so it seems. Charlie just wants to finish this last assignment and go home, but there are bigger issues at stake, as he gradually finds out. If others have their way, he may never make it back to the States alive.

America's security is at risk, and Gina Lopez returns to her homeland, Nicaragua, to work for former CIA Agent Roberto Morales, providing security intel for the US Embassy in Managua. But she can’t tell anyone about her true undercover assignment, especially not her boss Morales. When the embassy is bombed, Gina is saved by a blond American she later learns is a former army buddy hired by Morales to provide additional intel support. At first reluctant to work with Jake Turner, Gina soon warms up to him. Responsibility for the embassy tragedy is claimed by the miltant group Heroes Brigade. American reporter Rocky Brannon is in Nicaragua to investigate the possible connection between the Heroes Brigade and separatist group, God's Children, hidden deep in the jungle. Morales sends Gina and Jake to the jungle to gather intel on the terrorists while escorting Brannon to interview God’s Children leader, former priest Joaquín Torreón, who claims the group is peaceful despite the fact that his notorious brother Jesús, also known as Dark Angel, is an arms dealer wanted by Interpol. When Gina and Jake are attacked, Gina realizes someone is out to get her, and her undercover assignment is in jeopardy. A missing nuke, a high-powered US vigilante group known as Excalibur, the longtime feud between the two Torreón brothers, and a shady connection between Morales and the arms dealer, all make for a fiery situation that catches Gina right in the middle. Dodging betrayal and death, she isn't sure whom she can trust as she struggles to stay alive and uncover the truth.
