Detectives Goren and Eames encounter a gang of high-class, low-lifes led by Bernard (guest star Michael York), a slimy European with a taste for aging blondes and fine wine, who befriends, kills and robs tourists. Goren, however, is shocked to discover that the master murderer shares a connection to a deadly nemesis. The detectives try to out-maneuver the effete but effective Bernard -- and his posse of adoring women who kill for him -- until Goren's language skills help him zero in on a crime spree that spans the globe.
The slaying of a young computer company employee has Detectives Goren and Eames poking around the stealth security employed by rival tech firms where they lock onto an unstable code-writer Robbie (guest star DJ Qualls) -- whom they believe is being manipulated by his secretive therapist as Katrina (guest star Jennifer Van Dyck). Goren believes the key to the case lies with the suspect's paranoid behavior which could have been exploited after recent weeks of "treatment" under the doctor's bizarre care.
