This leads Billing to the Egyptian Embassy where he is greeted by a receptionist, the late diplomat's fiancée. Overcome with grief, she is replaced by undercover reporter Jenny Drew (Susan Shaw). Jenny quickly uncovers a web of illegal activity and with the help of Inspector Corcoran (Liam Redmond) the two reporters are drawn deeper into the conspiracy. Up against high profile suspects can they crack the case?
