In Sudan, Janjaweed terrorists abduct Clare Somersby, a refugee-clinic doctor whose father is Latif's chief armorer, British arms dealer Gerald Crawford. Their aim is to force the delivery of a cache of weapons to war-torn Darfur. The kidnapping gives Section 20 a lead on Latif, albeit through an alliance with Crawford, whose weapons were likely used in the assaults in New Delhi and Cape Town. Though Stonebridge holds Crawford personally responsible for past carnage, including the death of Kate Marshall, he and Scott pose as Crawford's aides as the weapons dealer negotiates with Matak, a corrupt government minister. With an inquisitive American journalist (and Damien's sometime paramour) named Maggie and her local guide Jacoub in tow, Section 20 and Crawford arrange a rendezvous to secure Clare's release in exchange for cash. However, it soon becomes apparent that the Janjaweed leader, Tahir, wants more than money before he'll part ways with his hostage.
