Series 3, Episode 4

The latest round of Middle East peace talks are abruptly halted when Patricia Norton, the UN Chief Negotiator, disappears, derailing the peace process. She has been abducted in her car by an unknown man.

Adam and Patricia

One of the last things Patricia said to Adam was that he should investigate David Swift, the newspaper mogul, neo-conservative and renowned Israeli extremist. Swift is associated with a group called the November Committee - their intention being to block any Middle East 'solution' which provides a Palestinian state.

Meanwhile, Danny and Zoe are undercover in the Palestinian Freedom Campaign investigating the flamboyant, left wing MP and chairman of the Campaign, Nicholas Ashworth. They are looking into accusations that his Campaign is a front for channelling funds to Palestinian Terror Groups.

Danny and Adam

The team are surprised to uncover that one of the campaigners is Harry's estranged daughter, Catherine.

Then Patricia's dead body is found. Adam, shocked by her death, follows up her tip about Swift and the November Committee.

The team discover that there is an undercover agent in the Campaign - and it's not one of theirs. They also discover a list of prominent figures the November Committee would like 'removed'. Patricia was one - Ashworth another. His life is in danger.

Adam and Fiona

Zoe ropes in her boyfriend, Will, to take some photos of Ashford and his secret boyfriend, Richard. Will, smitten with Zoe, proposes. She is hesitant at first but then agrees. Little does she realise that Will's seemingly friendly brother Andy has stolen a photo of Ashworth and Richard that he's found in Will's flat. A photo that later gets into MI5 hands...

Catherine is suspected to be the undercover agent working for Swift and Danny is tasked to stay close to her and find out the truth. Difficult. Not only because she's Harry's daughter, but because he fancies her. To Danny's relief he finds out she's actually collecting evidence against Swift. They sleep together.

Catherine and Harry

Adam sends in Fiona - his wife and MI6 agent - to attempt to seduce Swift. The team are also tailing him and he soon meets with someone - could it be the agent? It's Richard, Ashworth's boyfriend! The relationship is a cover and the pillow talk has been Swift's information source. Richard wants revenge for his sister's death in Israel at the hands of a Palestine bomb. But MI5 beat him to it. Ashworth is saved.

Catherine learns the truth and has a bittersweet reunion with Harry. But what of Fiona and her Swift seduction? Nothing happened - but the evidence suggests otherwise. GBH and attempted rape? - Swift has no choice but to leave the country...
