Gabrielle meets her journalist friend, Stephane, at a reception for the new ambassador at the Romanian Embassy in Paris. Gabrielle calls Alexander from the police station the following morning after she learns that her date, Stephane, has been murdered in a manner similar to that of Jack the Ripper's fourth victim. Although Peter Sinclair is convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that a copycat is on the loose, Philippe remains very skeptical that this is a mere coincidence. This sends Peter jetting across the Continent searching for the first three victims of this copycat killer. Alexander delays the team's next assignment until this has been cleaned up.
