Terry Clark is looking to get out of the Australia and New Zealand sectors of his heroin business, and concentrate on the European market instead. In an audacious move he offers to sell his stake to Bob Trimbole. As part of his business plan, Terry lets Allison in on some key business secrets to ensure his interests are protected.

Trimbole seeks to fund the business acquisition via the purchase of marijuana from green-skin Michael Hurley. But when the deal goes wrong and Hurley is sprung by the cops, Trimbole must call in some favours from his corruptible friends in law enforcement.

Meanwhile, the bodies of drug couriers Doug and Isabel Wilson are found in a shallow grave. This puts enormous heat on both Terry and Bob. Terry is in Singapore on drug business, and is forced to go into hiding with his family. Bob, who arranged the hit for Terry via with his favourite hitman, 'Fred', has an extra issue to consider — if the Wilson's bodies can be found so easily, what's to say Don Mackay won't float to the surface somewhere too?
