Her old captain at the Scottsdale PD is moving home to Brooklyn. Now shes doing security for Warren Quinn, director of a documentary being shot at Papago Park about the German POW camp and the great escape of Christmas Eve, 1944, when some prisoners tunneled out and fled. And one surviving escapee, Kapitan Zur See Erik Ernsta man in his nineties confined to a wheelchair after a boating accidenthas just been murdered.
