He enjoys the company of many diplomatic officials until he is accused of trafficking children from Africa into Europe and finds himself in a South African police station. He reaches out to an old friend, Nicky Brown, to help him track the missing children.

The clue takes them from South Africa to Italy, Algeria, and finally Paris. During this time their already complicated friendship becomes even more so during their journey to find the truth.
