Dangerous Assignment: Smuggling to the Iron Curtain (EP4385)

Today’s Mystery:

Join government agent Steve Mitchell on a pulse-pounding journey through Europe’s underbelly in ‘Dangerous Assignment.’ When strategic materials start vanishing, Mitchell’s quest leads him to the heart of Italy, where trust is a luxury and danger lurks in every shadow. From suspicious textile mills to clandestine meetings in dimly lit coffee houses, every step brings him closer to the truth – and to the barrel of a gun.
