Jeff and new Bailey and Spencer investigator Rex Randolph are on assignment in the Latin American island republic of Piñacaro. Its former President, Alonso, was overthrown in a military takeover by the current President, Romero. Before he could escape from the island, Alonso had to leave his seventeen year old daughter, Nina Alonso, behind for medical reasons. Dropped off on the island the hard way and to be picked up in exactly twenty-four hours at the drop off point, Jeff and Rex have what is the supposedly straightforward task of retrieving a now well Nina from the hospital, and bringing her to the mainland to be reunited with her father. In the process of their mission, they learn that Romero, through his army, has ordered all of Alonso's associates, including his family members, be executed.

Mexican adventure

No folks, you won't find in this episode the good jazzy L.A. atmosphere. But I admit that, in many episodes, this was already the same. You have all kind of settings in this show, not only urban ones, streets, night clubs and empty warehouses... Jeff is in mission in Mexico to find the President's daughter, and not the President of the United States...You have some funny moments here, such as this sequence with the donkey...Expect some mariachis, sombreros and beautiful senoritas, bandidos and Tequila atmosphere in this entertaining story where, on the other hand, you won't have many surprises. More an adventure yarn, than a crime or real usual investigation scheme. Nothing terrific but enjoyable.
