Comments: Starts off as a decent "My little girl's been kidnapped" thriller and then shoots itself in the foot complicatedly morphing into a melodramatic "Assassinate a Foreign Minister" thriller.

Summary: A G-8 summit is set for Rome the day after Christmas; the Italian and Japanese governments will announce an aid package for the Balkans. Kondura arrives from Tokyo to improve security at the embassy, making waves with his direct manner. A Japanese tourist who's a single mother reports that her young daughter has been kidnapped. Posing as the woman's husband, Kondura takes the lead with the kidnappers, who want money and no cops. However, the law requires that Kondura notify local authorities, who blunder a bit. Various exchanges go awry; then the kidnappers send the mother and Kondura to the Amalfi coast on what appears to be a goose chase. Why the delay? What's going on?
