Gayle got the money from her grandfather, but when he is kidnapped Harry and Lester discover printing equipment in his attic. He is a gifted counterfeiter who has been at it for years. He is being forced to print bogus money for a group of thieves who need a large sum of cash to purchase a shipment of heroin entering the country. The case takes many twists and turns, involving the secret service, FBI and the Mexican secret service. Written by Clintessence
