He would learn that his friend was in the midst of identifying a master criminal who is only known by the name Scorpio, so Scorpio sent his killer, a man who goes by many names who currently uses Matthew Drake, to take care of him. Jim's mission is to stop his next contract and to somehow find out who Scorpio is. So Jim selects 4 team members, Nicholas Black, a master of disguise, Casey Randall, a fashion designer who joined IMF to help get the ones who killed her fiance, Max Harte, a man who organized his own mission to locate his brother who went MIA in Vietnam and Grant Collier, the son of one of Jim's old team members, Barney Collier. They learn that Drake will be going to London where no doubt his next contract will be. So they make sure Drake stays at the hotel they picked to learn who the target is and Grant takes his place. But, when they lose Drake, can they figure out how he will do it in time to save Grant. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com See less
