John heads to the resort to mingle amongst the guests until he obtains the information that Mr. Smith needs involving the training of an apparent revolutionary army. He must complete his mission quickly so that he can play in DC by New Year's Eve and abort a revolt on the next day. He learns in a not so veiled threat by Columbian cartel thugs that his predecessor was “fired” when a shark had him for lunch.
