Without the government's "protection," Michael pops up on the radar of the police and foreign intelligence and tries to run, but can't avoid being arrested. Still burned, and now under investigation, Michael bides his time until an old friend from his Special Forces days liberates him for a favor: help extradite a Venezuelan criminal who is stealing land from farmers in that country for himself and his friends. In order to kidnap the man, Michael and his team have to first get past the guy's right hand man and secure a direct meeting with him. When Michael's friend reveals himself as a double agent, working for the criminal's associates to eliminate him before he can be tried and framing Michael for the killing, Michael has to escape and defeat his friend so the Venezuelan farmers can put him on trial and receive justice. Along the way, Michael's friends worry that, with his emancipation, he'll go back to work for the CIA, which is exactly what he's planning.
