'Maddie finally attains her aimed-for status of 'assassin par excellence'. Her targets cease being simply `bad' people but rather significant figures in national and International society whose immoral intentions have been detrimental to society at large. Her first assignment appears successful until the appearance of the investigative team of Proud and Bramley who uncover the crime. Maddie and her partner Caspar Hopfner pay off the blackmailing duo and proceed to the more important ambition of eliminating an African dictator. The assassination seems to have been achieved albeit with frightening and significant results.
