Monique Lamer, an Europol agent, has barely met an informant with information concerning a case involving the counterfeiting of the new single European currency, the Euro, before someone guns him down. Monique goes to see Stone after she barely escapes from the rendez-vous with her life and the briefcase the wounded informant gave her. She shows Stone the counterfeit of the new currency and asks him to take her to Addington, the only member of the committee who can be trusted with this very sensitive information. Monique threatens to go public with her information causing a Continent-wide financial scandal if Alexander does not help. Alexander has but one choice and calls Peter Sinclair to fix the problem.
