Christina the daughter of Herman Rice, a senior executive of Chalmers and Cole Associates, had gone missing. She took a large sum of her father's money and eloped with her adept boyfriend Brad Jackson, an elf. Rice hired the runners to bring back his daughter and his money.The team followed one clue after another, tracing the target's path using footage captured with checkpoint cameras. The team uses its contacts to track down Brad at a luxury hotel in downtown, where he was having a good time with some Vory prostitutes. He had taken the money from Christina. Unable to crack the code on the credstick he sold her to the Vory in exchange for 50,000 nuyen and a R6 SIN (Tir Tairngire). The runners ruined his day, left him knocked out and tied to the bed and called the J, with enough evidence to incarcerate him. Instead of going to fight the Vory, they used tact and used their contact to buy Christina back from the Vory using her father's money, before they could persona fix her. Herman was pleased at the team's efficiency and did not mind the loss of some of his money.
