Whatever the explanation, the mysterious windfall has come at exactly the right time. Truth is Tom has to make good huge losses from insider trading - and fast.So he travels to Zurich, secures the funds, and tells his wife to offer on her dream country mansion. What Tom doesn't know yet is that his father was being used as a 'ghost' to clean up dirty money by a New York laundry operation: really the money belongs to Carlos Morales, Medellin's biggest cocaine baron.
