She's a Salvadoran child and he adopts her calling her Alifair. Dave discovers on the plane there was a member of the local underworld, that indeed has been killed by Giancano, the godfather of a Dave's childhood friend, the local boss Bubba Rocque. Now Dave is the target and one night three killers burst in his house and murder his wife, but one of them dies hit by a car, while another one is found electrocuted in the bathroom. The last one threatens Dave until he dies too in a gunfight. Dave learns Claudette, Bubba's wife, was the real instigator of Annie's death, so Bubba intervenes and kills the woman.
