Neal and Okafor encounter a deep cover G.E.N.E.S.I.S. agent with dubious objectives and an heiress with a scheme to disrupt the political landscape of unified Germany. Worse, the heiress has thrown in with a megalomaniac who plots to use secret Nazi technology from World War II to corner the global energy market. Can Neal and Okafor thwart this powerhouse alliance?
