When he wakes up, the person who was supposed to pick up the packages is dead. And he has to talk his way out of jail. Turing hacks into databases where she finds that a stolen credit card ring is operating in her part of the city. That information leads them to a collection agency where a skip tracer who is the ringleader has all the credit cards, the names, what was purchased and where it was delivered in a spreadsheet. When he disappears, Turing and company set out to find him because they want to know if he is connected to Nestor.
