Murdoch finds himself working to save Canada - a request that has from the Prime Minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, no less. Working with Canadian spy Terrence Meyers, Murdoch has less 24 hours to stop whoever is blackmailing the government for $4 million - or they will fire a rocket on New York City. Information leads them to the wilds of Mississauga where Murdoch comes across none other than James Pendrick who admits to building a rocket. With the information Murdoch gives him, Pendrick realizes someone has been stealing his work. Together, Pendrick and Murdoch race to Niagara-on-the-Lake to stop the missile from being fired.
