Largo (Winch) is the illegitimate son of Nerio Winch, a billionaire industrialist, who did business very much in a greyish manner. When Nerio sensed that his time was up he named Largo his heir, who didn't know that Nerio's his father. Together with Simon, a friend whom he met when he was in prison, Joy, Nerio's bodyguard, Karinsky, a former KGB computer expert, and John Sullivan, Nerio's attorney, Largo tries to right some of the wrongs that Nerio may have done and to keep up the good that he has done. And every now and then Largo has to shoot his way out the situation that he finds himself in.
Nerio reappears in Largo's life, the apparent victim of a kidnapping. In the meantime, Joy and Largo are seeing each other a bit outside of Group W, and Largo is trying to convince Joy to come back to work for him. Simon meets up with Kerensky, and they end up having a shootout at an Asian restaurant. Kerensky comes back to work for Largo, and Simon apologizes for having suspected him of being the mole. Largo begins to realize that Nerio isn't really Nerio... and the trouble ensues. Jaeger comes to Joy's apartment (on the fake Nerio's orders) and takes her prisoner. She manages to alert Kerensky, and he comes to her rescue. Largo manages to foil Nerio's plans, and Nerio jumps down a ventilation shaft 64 floors up. Simon is made VP of International Relations (much to the shock of Cardignac!). Largo and Joy kiss in the penthouse, and are interrupted by Kerensky, who tells them that there was blood in the shaft, but no body... so Nerio's double could still be alive.
Joy rushes to North Carolina to help her former husband, David Crossley, who, it seems, has stolen from Group W to repay a gambling debt. Crossley is the veterinarian at Group W's stallion farm in Versailles, North Dakota and is managing a program to breed champion horses through artificial insemination. Days before, Crossley had walked off with a vial of semen from a champion horse and a neighbouring rancher, who uses threats, blackmail and violence, is after it.
Largo, Simon and Joy are in Paris, investigating the theft of laser-guided components from one of Group W's labs. A local security firm, Securitek, was in charge of security, and works with them to figure it out. In the meantime, Joy meets a man at the shooting range, and goes on a date. However, Largo is still jealous, and can't help but show it. While in Paris, Joy and her father reunite, but not without difficulty and some anger on Joy's part. Charles Arden assists them in finding the culprits who stole the laser-guided components, and Joy has to let go of some of her anger.
One of Largo's business associates, Ethan Forest, has gone missing, during a trip to Russia. Largo and Kerensky fly to St. Petersburg to investigate.

Elektra Dane, a board member of Group W and the new director of entertainment department, is pushing for the company to buy a computer games firm. The company has created a violent virtual-reality game called â€˜Psycho Killer'. Largo likes the technology but he proposes to wait before they sign a contract with Magna Games.
