Jack and the gang become embroiled in the intricate world of foreign affairs when a wealthy businessman seeks diplomatic immunity in the Colombian Embassy in London. Phillip Granger is responsible for a fire that killed dozens - now Jack and the gang face the impossible challenge of getting him back on British soil without causing an international incident.

Full SynopsisEdit

When a building has been deliberately burnt to the ground, killing 18 people, and the guilty culprit cannot be touched, Jack Quinn and his shadowy team of crime fighters are brought in to bring him down. Despite all those interviewed naming ruthless property developer Philip Granger as the brains behind the job, the police are unable to intervene as he takes refuge in the Colombian Embassy. With the embassy not officially on UK soil and security ramped up to maximum, no one can touch Philip while he is hiding out there. With the Colombian ambassador an old school friend, a political approach is also useless and it seems Granger is going nowhere.

While Jack, Jessica and Tom Tom set up opps undercover as pest control in the home of doddery old lady Celia in order to monitor Granger’s activity, Charlie infiltrates the embassy and works on wooing the ambassador’s beautiful daughter. However, Celia is sharper than she seems and Jack’s undercover surveillance is soon under threat, as is Charlie if he can’t keep his feelings in check and stop his emotions clouding his judgement.

With their window of opportunity quickly closing and the pressure on, will the team be able to turn Philip over to the police without breaking any political boundaries and causing an international backlash?
