Cole decides to avenge Lynch and find out who killed him. His investigation leads to Tao, a former member and enemy of Grifter's team the Wildcats. Grifter is contacted by Holden Carver, a member of Tao's organisation, who turns out to be a sleeper agent. Lynch is the only one who knows about Carver's status as an agent and Carver hopes that Grifter can help him now Lynch is in a coma.
