Back at Sun Hill, DCI Jack Meadows is informed about the kidnap and, along with DCs Mickey Webb and Kezia Walker, heads to the hotel where she was staying with her mother, Helen, and stepfather, Karl Wegner. Jack is irritated when his German equivalent and Charlottes godfather, Hajo Trautzchke, questions the family along with DC Ina Zimmermann.
Eventually Jack realises that the taxi firm Terry is working undercover for is involved in the kidnap and that they will have to work closely with the German police in order to get Charlotte home safely.
Elsewhere, Terry attempts to keep Charlotte calm and demands to know from the taxi firm owner, Jimmy Thompson what’s going on. Jimmy tells Terry he’s been hired to exchange Charlotte for money and that the meeting will take place later that day. Terry manages to send Jack a message telling him where to go and Jack immediately mobilizes all units.
Both English and German police officers run after her in an attempt to get her to safety, but Carson soon catches up with her and bundles her into the back of a car. Terry is stopped in his tracks when Carson’s boss, Viktor Hauptmann, holds a gun to Terry’s head and forces him into the car as well.
Terry and Charlotte are driven to Viktor’s penthouse where Viktor tests the DC but ultimately realises that he can be ‘trusted’. Carson brings Charlotte into the room where Viktor tells Terry he will need to pick up a computer hacker, Jan Maybach at the airport later that day.
Once Terry, Viktor and Jan are altogether, Viktor tells them they will be driving to a different airport and catching a flight to Germany. Sun Hill officers who have been tracking Terry, attempt to reach him as quickly as possible, but as Terry’s plane takes off, he wonders if he will get out alive.
