The Outsider

Synopsis: Recalled from the battlefields of Afghanistan to identify the remains of his daughter, British mercenary Lex Walker arrives in Los Angeles to find that the body in the morgue belongs to a stranger. With his daughter now missing, Walker convinces a street-wise detective that his daughter is still alive and in danger. The two follow a trail of high-tech intrigue that leads them to his daughter's former boss, a crooked cyber-millionaire who will do whatever it takes to protect his empire - including taking down anyone who gets in his way. Driven by desperation and rage, Walker must fight his way through an army of thugs and hired killers to save the one person that means more to him than life itself.

Get her out.

- No!

- God damn it!


Hold her down!

Hold her down! Relax! Relax.

Hold, relax, relax, relax, relax.

Morning, partner.

- Hey.

When did they call it in?

About three hours ago.

A couple ofjoggers found

her after the tide went out.

Watch your step here, it's a bit dicey.

Victim is Caucasian female, mid-20's

suffered severe trauma

from apparently falling off

this structure right over here.

I've also got a partiaI ID.

Found a British passport that

lists her as a Samantha Walker

and a driver's license that shows

a locaI address in Hollywood.

Why only partiaI?

She was out here for most of the night.

Seems like maybe the locaI

wildlife took a run at her.

See if you can find someone

to confirm the identity.

Track down the next of kin.

If she's got a visa,

State's got a record.

So, send a black and

white to the residence,

talk to the landlord, neighbors,

anybody who maybe knew her.

All right.

Sheriff report a car, abandoned

car, missing car somewhere?

No, not that I'm aware of.

Yep, she didn't get here on her own.

- A long way from Hollywood.

- Yep.

- Someone saw her.

- Copy that.

Walker, the

man needs to see you.

You wanted to see me, sir.

Give us a minute.

You are aware that all voice

and e-maiI communications

sent to and from this base are monitored

under standard security protocols?

Well, of course, yeah.

We received this yesterday

while you were on patroI.

I'm sorry, Walker, there

is no easy way to say this.

Your daughter was found dead

after an apparent drug overdose

earlier this week in Los Angeles.

This can't be right.

This can't be right.

It's a mistake, you're gonna

have to double-check this.

The body is actually still there.

They'll need you to sign off on it

before it can be shipped

back to London for buriaI.

I'm gonna have to get the

next chopper out of here.

Yeah, well, it's not as simple as that.

Look, I know this is hard

for you to understand,

but when you signed your contract

extension with Everest last March,

you gave up certain liberties

that government military

personneI are allowed.

You can't be serious.

We've been tasked with

a major staging operation

in coordination with the arrivaI

of a senator from the States.

We'll need you for

full tacticaI support.

We're talking about my daughter here.

And you are a team leader at Everest.

What the f*ck has that

got to do with anything?

Risk versus reward.

When we brought you in

from the British military,

you were making less

than 30,000 a year.

At Everest, you're making

more than four times that.

Now you listen to me,

you walk away from this,

you'll be abandoning

your operationaI post.

No contractor in the

world would touch you.


Well, f*ck you and yours.

Anyone there?

Hold on a minute, mate.

What the hell are you doing here?

I thought you were still abroad.

Yeah, well, things didn't

quite go as planned.

Fancy a drink? I think I

still got whiskey down here.

Yeah, I'll come down.

Listen, Nick, I

just want to say thanks.

I appreciate you

looking after the place.

Just wish it were

under better circumstances.


You know, it's funny...

We used to collect these

from restaurants all over the world

whenever we were on holiday.

Melissa thought we'd

settle in this place.

That we would build a life

together having these dinner parties

with plates from all over the world.

I think it made me laugh.

And it was a very good

conversation piece.

And then after Sam was born...

The only time we got to

traveI abroad was when...

Was when I got new orders.
