With Terry relocated to the UK, Allison is determined to get on with the Australian end of the business; crushing heroin, recruiting couriers and fending off increasingly desperate sensations of loneliness and isolation. But when a new courier is caught carrying a large amount of heroin into Australia, Allison is faced with a terrifying new challenge. The Federal Narcotics Bureau boys, led by Agent Jack Smith, are on her tail and prepared to play nasty. Smith pushes an already badly shaken Allison almost to the edge.

Meanwhile, George Freeman is unimpressed when his cop 'mates' shut down all nine of his illegal casinos in order to regain some credibility with the public. But a certain someone is also unimpressed with George Freeman. Perhaps because Freeman took his plumber Michael Hurley's wife Natalie into his home while Hurley was in The Philippines. Or perhaps because Freeman rigged a horse race without telling anyone. Whatever the reason, Freeman ends up with a bullet in the head… and it hurts like hell.
