Evan tracks Barry to Oklahoma City, but before he can bring the jumper home, the Jamaican Raetown posse of “Jim” Collins arrives to kill Barry and to recover the $800,000 he failed to launder. In a shootout, Barry and a Jamaican Richard Lawes die while Evan is wounded. Back home recuperating, Jim informs his other two posse members they must clean up the Oklahoma City mess by killing the surviving witness.
