The royal palace sees the crisis getting out of hand and wants to make an example of someone - a head must roll. The Minister of Justice comes under so much pressure that he drops Prosecutor-General Persigal like a hot brick. Now Paul Gerardi must go on without protection. He starts to search for the Salamander resistance mission in military records but all related documents have disappeared. Prosecutor-General Persigal resigns in order to warn the public of the Salamander conspiracy but the organisation hits back and sends assassins after him and Gerardi.
