This leads him into a deadly cocaine ring. In the process Gil has attempts on his life.


"I can help you with your luggage," said Gil Leduc as he boarded the bullet train at Gare Montparnasse in Tours, France.

He was relieved to be be back in his native country after a four-year absence. Homesick didn't begin to describe what he felt while he was away. No place on earth could compare to France.

The seventeen year-old followed an elderly lady in a long, light blue coat onto the train.
