A team led by Alexis Sutherland and operating under orders from Scott Dawson of the Paradise Foundation has been kidnapping models all over Europe. Lucienne Christophe forms a task force, suspecting Erika Stone might have returned, or even worse, someone else is using her Type-7 drug (the latter being the case). The Interpol force suffers from internal bickering and is outmaneuvered twice by the Foundation team, Lucienne and Aisha Reynolds both ending up frozen with no clear way to revive them. Cassandra Flick manages to lead a seemingly successful counter-offensive against the Paradise team with help from Ivan Popov's own unit but ultimately they're defeated and Cassandra is captured. In Russia it's revealed the models are being sold through Sierra Escorts but an initial attempt to infiltrate the building leads to capture after a demonstration of the new Type-7 Chip. Fortunately the last of the Interpol agents present in Russia are able to rescue those captured and in a protracted battle half of the Paradise, the team is captured, including sales records which allowed them to rescue the sold models. In the aftermath, however, Cassandra and Aisha were kidnapped when the captured Paradise agents were rescued, though the Paradise team was chipped for their failure, minus Ryoshi Tenzo. Ashley Tisdale, who'd developed the chips, was also replaced by Mary Hamilton and Erika Stone was recovered in California.
- Ivan's last name is the story is listed as being Bukolov. This was changed retroactively later on.
